Everything is less than $10 at this microscopic Korean eatery on the NYU campus; despite overwhelmingly negative reviews on Menupages, the food is pretty damn good, and convenient if you happen to be in the Village and don't want to drag your ass up to Koreatown. The menu is strictly "greatest hits," but these include a fine kimchee stew with just the right amount of tart and burn, and a good bibimbap with both beef and vegetarian variations. You can't cook your own bulgogi over barbecue grills, but pre-cooked suffices in an over-rice dish. Seating is along a counter that looks out onto Mercer Street, where you can watch students stream by.
