You'd never know it from the flurry of Seamless orders and revolving door of office types at lunchtime, but there's much better Korean food to be had in K-Town, not far away—and it's worth trekking those extra blocks. Still, if you need something quick, the order-at-the-counter format is faster than a sit-down spot, and the place delivers to midtown; its grab-and-go options including bulgogi with rice and the like are a boon to the extremely time-crunched. Don't expect fireworks from the kitchen menu, though. Soondubu (tofu stew) was dominated by a jarred-sauce flavor, the filling in vegetable dumplings proved to be largely rice. The place does turn out a pretty good sizzling platter of bibimbap, and a comforting ginseng chicken soup, but if you can spare the time, you're still better off on 32nd Street.
