Serving traditional Korean fare like dumplings and beef short ribs marinated in a soy-based sauce, this North Park storefront eatery offers seating for 15 and a more intimate dining experience for four to six people in two smaller rooms. Entrees include some traditional treats that can be hard to find in Chicago, including sam geh tang, a soup made using Cornish hen stuffed with sweet rice, dates and ginseng, and tofu stew, prepared with pork, beef, seafood or meat-free. In summer, the eatery offers a few seasonal selections, like cold buckwheat noodles served in a beef broth or spicy sauce, and often brings melon slices for a sweet finish.
