Short week in Ann Arbor, but was craving Korean. Although the food is touted as Korean Fusion, and it is, there are also dishes that are straight traditional. The bimbim bap (mixed rice) was tasty and fresh. Just the right ratio of ingredients and spiced right. Ordered the budae jigae, (base stew) and it was like what I had in Korea. Without sounding too snobby or condescending, there may be some people who may be turned off by what may appear to be low quality ingredients in this stew, and be quick to denigrate the dish without even realizing the history or origins behind the dish. The origins of the "base" stew go back to the Korean War where refugees and war survivors would rummage through whatever the base would throw away and then make a stew out of war rations. Thus the spam, hotdogs, ramen noodles in the stew with kimchi and tofu. Great and hearty chow if you know what to expect, but may surprise some folks that simple ingredients would be used to make the house specialty stew. Gotta know where it comes from to enjoy the novelty of the hearty and simple grub. Seoul Street does it right. Finally the fushion part of my meal came with the Korean Tacos and they are at par with all the food trucks in L.A. and N.Y. but don't rape you on the charge. You can get two for $4 which is more than reasonable. Also think they give you a bit more than the food trucks. I had two tacos, two entrees, and a drink for just over 20 bucks. The only ding, and it is a small ding is that the food is cooked to order so you may have to wait a wee bit. It's not fast food, so expect TLC in the prep of your meal. Great value and quality. I'll be seeing you all week while I'm at Ann Arbor and trying everything on the menu.
