Finally found my Korean spot!! This was such an exciting find that my friend and I came back here 3 weeks in a row… This place is in Shinokubo which is known as the Korea Town of Tokyo. I’ve been dying to check out this little town in search for some good Korean food so when I finally came here and discovered this restaurant I was really excited. One thing to keep in mind is that this place not exactly a hidden gem, it’s VERY popular amongst all sorts of age groups, couples, and families. There’s constant long waits even during week days so be prepared to stand in line.

Anyhow, although I still want to go back and try more things on their menu I have to say that hands down their samgyeopsal (1180yen per person) is amazing. The meat that they use is thicker than normal, and do you see the tilted pan that has kimchi at the bottom? The pork fat starts dripping down the kimchi along with the garlic and the other ingredients. When you finally wrap everything in the lettuce leaf and dip it into their sauce… it’s SO good. I also loved their naengmyeon (980yen) which is a cold noodle dish. A lot of places don’t do this dish right but this place does it well and it’s perfect for the hot summer in Tokyo right now.

I will be back here in no time.
