A Korean bar and restaurant beneath the popular laptop den by the same name is an unexpected find in Bed-Stuy and a boon to Pratt students. Since the atmosphere is stylish and the food pretty good, a person can overlook the cheesy K-Pop soundtrack. The menu isn't perfect, but given the neighborhood, the spot is a good place to satisfy Korean cravings, and the menu roves through all the favorites, including noodles, stews, rice dishes, and even the occasional Japanese-leaning option, like a terrific miso soup, or a bowl of ramen. Skip the mandu (dumplings) which, though presented appealingly in a light broth, lack much flavor. Opt instead for one of the rice or noodle dishes—kimchi fried rice, with tender bits of beef bulgogi, is a nice change from ubiquitous bibimbap.
