    Great place for traditional Korean at a reasonable price. They don't take reservations so go early or be prepared to wait.

    How is it possible that I eat so much Korean food yet I had not had Bossam until I came here??? I can't believe I've been missing out on this all my life.

    Bossam is a dish made out of pork with lettuce wrap. It comes in a big platter with all the parts separate. Half the fun is putting it together yourself with just the right amount of each ingredient. The Bossam is amazingly delicious. Its my fist time having it but my Korean friend said that this is the best place for it in Ktown.

    They also have a lot of other really good dishes. We had the kimchijigae or the kimchi stew and it came with lots of kimchi and big chunks of pork. They also have really big tasty haemul pajeon or seafood pancake and grilled squid. Their kalbi (short ribs) on a hot plate was also great.

    If you order Makgeolli here, it comes in a little pot with a ladle. I love it because it gives such an authentic feel.

    I've been spoiled by Momofuku but this place is good too and the price is right.
