Seasoned raw beef is a little soulless, separated from the pear and pepper that would add excitement to the mix.
Black Cod Jorim ($25)
Muted flavors and unappetizingly mushy textures quickly relegated this bowl to the side of the table.
Most entrees come with a side of jjigae. It is best left on the side.
Dduck Mandoo Guk ($15)
Overcooked dumplings and rice cakes in a broth that tastes of nothing but plain beef brisket, with no hint of aromatics or balance, is another low point of the meal.
Tofu Salad ($15)
Cold, somewhat soggy fried tofu stuffed with an unidentifiable paste. Was it mushroom? I couldn't detect the tea reduction it was supposed to be flavored with.
Brightly colored seasonal vegetables atop a bowl of rice. Bland and inoffensive, it'll fill you up without satisfying.
Duck Breast BBQ ($28)
Slices of excellent tender duck breast destined for the tabletop barbecue. The pumpkin, king oyster mushroom, and onion are a nice touch.
A Full Grill
Beef short rib, brisket, and duck breast fill our tabletop griddle. One of the best Korean barbecue experiences in midtown.
Assorted Ice Cream ($9 for three scoops)
Excellent pear, vanilla, and ginger ice creams atop a shortbread crumble.
