    Rice bowls! Start with charred asparagus or fluffy Korean meatballs. Try the "$12 salad'' too! The only dessert is a deconstructed Rocky Road sundae with caramel, brownies & marshmallow fluff... YUM! Read more

    Try the Beefy T Fried Rice Bowl - Hot chili fried rice, diced prime rib, braised shoyu garlic paste, fried egg and fried shallots. This is amazing. So many good flavors going on.

    Like the kogi truck but don't like the chase? This is the sit-down establish by the same owners. Great food w/ a fresh, trendy SoCal take on Korean cuisine. BYOB to boot.

    Chubby Pork Belly Bowl and Rock Yer Rock are my personal faves. I've yet to be there when the Sriracha Bar wasn't already sold out. Someday you will be mine Sriracha Bar, someday.

    This spot's a no-frills, open-kitchen'd strip mall spot serving up all sorts of Korean-fusion craziness and rotate weekly "ADD specials," since they know you can never make up your mind. Read more

    Yummy food, had the Steak sandwich and Chicken bowl, liked em both! Take out was kinda weird cuz they make you bag your own food. Cool vibe, you can write on the bathroom walls!

    I loved the 3PM meatballs. The meatball was juicy and the sauce packed a kick. If you have a pork belly fixation, the One Chubby Pork Belly Bowl is a must order.

    It was really weird that they bring out the lids and to go bags and say to bag it yourself. AND, you grab your own drinks from the back. but there's chalk in the bathroom!
