    Just get the diced chicken for a delicious fried experience without the hassle of bones. Getting a few small plates to share is the best strategy. Potstickers and green string beans were awesome.

    SO claims to serve the best Asian fusion cuisine in the SoMa area. If you can't handle spiciness, speak up, because they're very generous with the chilies. Don't forget to order their wings.

    Very good fresh made noodles everyday. You can't go wrong with any of their stir fry dishes. This is a sort of Korean and Chinese influenced cuisine.

    This is definitely not a Korean restaurant, cuisine is mostly Chinese and then other Asian. Definitely get the wings!
