“What the Fearless Critic books and apps have that UrbanSpoon and Yelp don’t is a complete lack of bullshit.”

Just say 'no' to buffets

Just because it’s cheap and there in front of you, do not be tempted. No good will come of eating the buffet food. Ask for a menu and order the following:

Though traditional ramen is Japanese, the version here made with scallops, squid, and mussels (woo dong noodle soup) is quite good. Ordering anything with sea cucumber (very nutritious and with an interesting texture) is a good bet, too. Speaking of food with interesting textures, try the abalone with asparagus: it’s tender yet toothsome, not quite rubbery and not quite crunchy...yet a bit of both. And for the big finish, definitely order the cha chiang mein (black bean noodle), a real bonus for lovers of fermented black bean dishes. In fact, noodle dishes are pretty good all around here, and very popular with the Korean crowds that frequent this place after knocking back soju at the adjacent clubs.

Overall, the best dishes here are the nexuses of Chinese and Korean, so if you’re used to Szechuan or Hong Kong-style places only, there’s a little learning curve. Hey, learning is more fun with adventurous friends, so bring ’em—the portions are certainly big enough.
