Ssyal Ginseng HouseMayfair
This Koreatown restaurant is all about authenticity, and with less than 10 items on the menu, you have no choice than to eat out of your comfort zone. From spicy soft tofu stew to beef steak prepared with Asian spices, you'll get a good feel for Korean cuisine here. The waitstaff brings a cafeteria-style cart to the table for your ordering pleasure, but if you need a description, check out the menu written on the giant banner that hangs on the wall. It's a perfect spot for a peaceful conversation, with classical music playing in the background. And in keeping with Korean culture, expect a hot cup of tea when you arrive.
