Named after the owner, this restaurant serves both traditional and non-traditional small and large plates, including pa jun (savory pancake), bi bimbap, the kim dog (homemade sausage with kimchi and gochujang), Korean fried chicken, and hangover stew, otherwise known as sundubu jjigae. We particularly liked rice cakes in spicy sauce--pleasingly chewy, sprinkled with sesame seeds and sugar snap peas. And although you've got to pay for the banchan (the array of small appetizers that are usually free), you'll be glad you did. The platter of pickled is cured vegetables are made in-house. The garlicky, chile-heavy sesame leaf is particularly good, as is the spicy celery.
