    They can substitute tofu for the meat on the burgers :) Definitely get the kimchi fries!!

    Like it for lunch more and get the bulgogi burger! Course portion is smaller (too small, ramen) under prix fixe dinner. Average quality, didn't match expectations given the chef's fame, price, reviews

    Social Eatz is amazing. Great staff, inventive menu. Menu has changed a bit since my last visit, but the sweet tomato soup is remarkable.

    Bibimbap burger is da bomb. So is the pork bun. Ramen is a little salty but very good. Tuna tartare is nothing to write home about.

    Bibimbap burger is much better than the bulgolgi. It's so loud I can barely hear myself think.

    Tograshi Fries are very good with a spicy kick. When you pair it up with their creamy, yummy cheese sauce, your taste buds will thank you.

    You're here for the bibimbap burger. Throw the kimchi slaw (comes w/ the order) in the bun for a more fiery bite. Rare or medium rare.

    Bibimbap burger! Duh. Fries come w/ a great sweet mayo sauce. Add sriracha to both = amazing. Ribs are fall-off-the-bone good - a bit overpriced for only 3 but with Scoutmob's 50% off, worth a try.
