    Love the atmosphere of this place. I highly recommend Anju, their Korean bar snacks pop-up on the first Friday of every month (10pm-1am, line starts to form around 9:30).

    The dumpling soup was too salty; I'd recommend ordering something else from here.

    Loved the Korean brunch. You get a Korean-style omelet, chive pancakes, Korean hash browns and your choice of marinated beef, chicken or tofu followed by a scope of gelato or sorbet.

    The Sojutini and Mandu Happy hour is one of the best in the city. $4 drinks and Rails, and $3 dumplings cannot be beat.

    Solid service, OK Korean food. The only thing close to legit that I tried was the pork bulgogi. The chap-chae, mandu & accompanying soy dip were all bland. More American than traditional Korean.
