Finally we were seated and ordered our OB Beers and way too much food. The banchan arrived at our table right away which was perfect because we were starving. We dug in immediately- sooooo good!
I think I understand the very mixed reviews of this place. Our friend's recommendation was spot on- this place serves Korean comfort food. When you are in the mood for a belly full of home-style Korean this place will have you raving. But if you just went to this place expecting a 5 star meal, you might leave disappointed. As for us, on a chilly fall night with a huge appetite we left incredibly delighted and satisfied!

Then our ridiculous amount of food started arriving. First came the Ojinguh Bokum- pan fried squid with vegetables and hot spicy sauce. The nice thing about this place being so busy is that all of your food arrives piping hot, direct from the kitchen. The drawback is that the preparation is probably a bit rushed and our squid was a bit chewy.
Then came our kimchi pancake followed by the Mae Woon Gal Bi Jim- spicy stew of prime short ribs with chestnuts and jujube. The meat was super tender and the sauce was thick and sweet, almost like dessert.
