Guys, guys, guys. Can you believe it? A Korean place opened on the west end! Mind blowing. It’s located right beside Empanada Convenience Store (never heard of it before, apparently its Filipino; not what I was expecting) but the better landmark is the nearby McDicks.
The hours. Closed on Tuesday.
We came on a Friday afternoon for lunch. Only a table or two were occupied. Pretty surprised. This place should be packed for lunch.
The lady working the front was so sweet. Great service and she even thanked us/said she hoped to see us again.
Menu is split into appetizers, KFC, tonkatsu and hansik.
The miso soup came with the tonkatsu.
Nara pizza tonkatsu ($15.99)
Deep fried pork sirloin with cheese and their special sauce, pickled cabbage and rice. The pizza label is an odd translation but don’t let that deter you. The cheese and deep fried pork was a perfect combination. Crispy, tender and not greasy at all.
Great to see Korean finally making its way to the west end. Will be back for more. Very, very soon.
