    I'll recommend the place but I'm really more slanted towards it being 'just okay'. First of all, it is really cramped. The table for two is about 3'x5' in dimensional size and the restaurant is so busy that you actually feel bad about waving down the staff. The 칼국수(kahlgooksoo) is bomb. Chicken broth meets pork bits. The hearty taste of the broth is well complimented by the smoky taste of the pork. The 비빔국수(bibimgooksoo) is okay at first but gets increasingly spicier due to the pungent seasoning of minced garlic. The kimchee tastes just like the bibimgooksoo. Too garlicky... All in all, I would go for the kahlgooksoo again. FYI - Free rice and free refills on kahlgooksoo. Awesome sauce!

    Atmosphere: noisy, shared tables. Hong Kong dim sum feel like an old cafeteria from a different era. Country Western simple feel as well. Food: Biminguksu was not too spicy and had a strong cucumber taste which added lightness and freshness to the dish. Ground meat inside was a surprise. Dumpling soup included bits of ground meat as well. A bit greasy and hardy with a thick sauce similar to American style chicken noodle soup. Kimchi is potent with lots of pepper paste stuck to the outside.

    Korean comfort food. There are better places to go for mandoo or kalguksu, but this place is a good, reliable choice, especially when it's chilly out and you can't decide where to go for a bite. It's cramped, crowded, and noisy. There always seems to be a long line. There is a no-nonsense feel to the place that can feel unwelcoming, but I think that's part of the charm.
