A staple Korean side dish, acorn jelly is a healthy ingredient in many salads in Korean cuisine. Chef Liz has her own twist on this Korean staple by adding in a Western favorite - kale. Mixed in with nori, scallions, and a light dressing, this salad is refreshing and perfect for sharing. Trust us - you've never experienced a kale salad like this one before!

Calling all fried rice lovers! This go-to late night dish is a must in every Korean meal. Chef Liz opts for anchovies over the conventional pork and beef, providing an unexpected, yet surprisingly delightful, alternative for the dish's more meaty options. The chilies add some spice while the perfectly fried egg on top is the icing on the cake.


Jaeyook Gnocchi
Pan-fried Rice Cakes Sautéed with Pork Belly

Don't let the name of this dish mislead you - the term "gnocchi" is a bit of a stretch, but this dish is delicious nonetheless. Chef Liz takes the authentic flavors of this quintessential street food and elevates them. Made with perfectly chewy rice cakes sautéed with crispy bits of pork belly and topped with a refreshing scallion salad, this dish will envelop your taste buds with the perfect balance of sweet and spicy.


Dol Sot Bibimbap
Sautéed Onions, Scallions, Spinach, Carrots, Zucchini, Shiitake Mushrooms, Beef, Topped with a Crispy Fried Egg and Served with Housemade Bibimbap Sauce

Dol Sot Bibimbap is a must on the menu of all Korean restaurants. Chef Liz stays true to the dish's standard ingredients but adds her own touch with the house made sauce. The meat is cooked to perfection and the wide array of colorful vegetables complement each other both in taste and in texture. Overall, this bright dish is very flavorful and filling, so make sure to dive in with an empty stomach!


spicy pork raymun

There's nothing better on a chilly winter night than a sizzling pot of ramen. The Spicy Pork Ramyun is made from scratch and, unlike its Japanese counterpart, the broth is flavorsome but not too rich or heavy. Served in an old-school pot, you'll feel like you're in a Korean drama as you slurp away the winter blues.
