Locals or tourist, this place will not let you down! This is one of our favorite hang out with friends since it can accommodate large group and has great food with reasonable price. Their decor does need a little upgrade. It likes a dive bar/restaurant which can intimidate some.
It is always crowded so you might want to call first or just have to be patient and wait! Once you can bypass that, you are in for a treat of local comfort food.
Our favorite dishes are fried chicken, steak, poke, Manila clamps and kimchee fried rice.
The fried chicken is so moist and tender. The steak is perfectly cooked and came to your table still sizzling. The meat is tender and perfectly seasoning. Poke is so fesh served in soyu and seaweeds which add extra layer of flavor to it. Kimchee fried rice is their signature dish which is mix of spicy sour salty of Kim-chee (Korea pickle cabbage) and the sweetness of fried rice.
Everything is so tasty with large portion. You probably will need to take a long nap after the meal!
The only reason we did not give it five star because of the decor and parking. Otherwise, it is still our favorite eatery of local food in town!
