    So many great dishes. The eggplant, tartare, mackeral, chicken, pork jowel are all great. Mix the egg (+truffle) and corn in with the seasonal rice and thank me later!

    Some excellent dishes (cucumber with scallop, tartare, squid, pork jowl), easy sharing menu, but oddly unfinished decor. $36 for 3 dishes. Good Korean tapas.

    $36 for 3 items off the menu. What a bang for your buck! The big standouts are the pork jowl and sunchoke. Surprisingly filling but you'll still have space for desserts. All cocktails include soju!

    Such interesting bright flavors! Corn and egg were just as good as expectedz. The star was the pork jowl and the surprise of the night was the chicken with spicy peanut butter. SO crispy- mind blown!

    Terrific addition to the neighborhood. The Korean tapas were all delicious w/ scallop, little neck clam, egg, mackerel, pork jowl, and seasonal rice as stand outs. Too bad they don't serve makgeolli.

    The entire menu is incredible. It's $36 for 3 dishes and amazing rice. The eggplant is the best.

    Awesome. Modernized Korean - a play on banchan - $36 for 3 courses. Everything was great, highlights: brisket, tartar, corn, clam. Nice wines by the glass.

    Expect a fun dinner with a variety of small, pretty and creative dishes in an industrial environment. Definitely not your typical Korean fare, but I much preferred this to any restaurant in KTown.

    Chawanmushi with crispy quinoa and sea urchin is amazing! The chef is creative with the mix of ingredients and presentation. Great discovery!

    Modern, nuanced Korean food in dainty portions. Excellent value for the quality of the cooking. The grey concrete decor may be too minimal for some: the place is reminiscent of a parking garage.

    Stop everything you're doing and eat here. Don't sleep on: the corn, steamed egg + uni, pork, and seasoned rice.

    Super yummy and the 6 plates for $36 is a great deal. It may not seem like a lot of food, but it is! Soju Drinks are just ok. Grüener wine option was good.

    Go for the $2 upgrade from white to seaweed rice! Fried chicken and corn dishes were standouts.

    Pear sangria is worth the headache it'll inevitably give you.

    Beautiful space, friendly service and interesting takes on Korean small plates. The egg uni dish is a must. Also, loved the tartare. Affordable and great for a catch up dinner or date.

    Liked NY Strip, Egg Custard, and Peanut Chicken. For me the Eggplant and the Tofu would have been better a little chilled.
