You can’t find a better deal for lunch anywhere in the city. This is a non-descript, hole-in-the-wall, nothing fancy, restaurant with plenty of good food. For a mere $9.95 you receive a black and red bento lunch-box filled with: Bul Go Ki Pork (which is what I always order), or Chicken, or Beef, white rice, iceberg lettuce with peanut sauce, dumplings, and egg fritters – all served with bowls of kimchi, tofu soup, bean sprouts, and spiced-cucumbers. I always order a side of their white radishes marinated in sweet vinaigrette. I have only dined for lunch and you best arrive by 11:45 if you want to sit in their front dining room…not a fan of their back rooms. They only offer the lunch-box specials, including beverage, on Monday through Friday, from 11:30 to 2:00pm.
