“Very tasty and worth a visit!”
Review of Nakwon

Restaurant details
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Having been to many Korean restaurants, this one was definitely held its own with the best of them! It definitely speaks volume when the majority of the patrons appeared to be of Korean descent, thus indicating some level of authenticity and quality (though finding out one of the people cooking was actually Mexican sort-of took away from concept).

We started with dumplings, which were moist and very flavorful! I opted for a spicy beef stew, which was had a healthy serving of vegetables and meat. The stew was served in a clay pot, came steaming to the table and since it was so delicious, nothing remained at the end of the meal. My dining partner had the dumpling soup (similar to wonton) and found it overwhelming in size, as the bowl could easily hold a couple of gallons. She was quite happy with her choice and even took some home for later. I almost forgot to mention the freshness and wide selection of side dishes (anchovies, kimchee, bean sprouts, tofu and more).
The TV was a little loud, but not enough to disturb the meal. Also found the beverage refrigerator out in the dining room to lower the character of the place. Otherwise, the place was quite comfortable and welcoming.

Good, homestyle Korean food - lots of older Koreans go there, so it's traditionally prepared food. I particularly enjoyed the egg/scallion pancake, and all of the condiments are first-rate.
