I was very scared to try Korean food until my husband finally talked me into this great place. Now I want to go there one a week! I love the fried dumplings, the Chap Chee (I'm butchering the spelling, sorry), and this spicy chicken dish. I don't know what its called, but it is amazing!
The waitress there is very nice, and she loves kids. My son knows her now (he's almost 2), and loves it that she pays so much attention to him.
I love Mom and Pop restraunts.
But sometimes folks need to hire help. The food was great, but the single cook in the back was as overwhelmed as the single waitress. . . and this was a Wednesday night. I was happy with the food, as was my dining buddy. There were no leftovers, no, not a drop, but we left full enough not to be searching out dessert. My dining buddy says I should be specific about the wait, food was 35 minutes following seating and we ordered within five of sitting down. Overall, it is a fair enough place, but they need to staff it if they want return customers.
a step above average.
I like each of the Korean restaurants in the Twin Cities for different reasons. As a Korean-American myself, I eat Korean food most of the time. So although the restaurants in the TC metro may not be totally authentic, I can appreciate them for their convenience and for giving me a break in the kitchen! I like Mirror for its variety. Bring some friends and try the haemul jeongol if you like seafood. The barbecue dishes can be good or not so good, but I've always had good luck with the dukbokki.
