New Korean spots seem to be popping up all over the south side. We decided to try Machef, which is a few doors down from Sushi Wasabi.
We dropped in on a Sunday (around 1:00pm) for a late lunch. It was empty but there were a couple other customers that came in. Service is friendly and the chef even popped by a few times to say hello.
The menu is small; appetizers, mains and desserts for a total of 15 items.
Nicely marinated and good texture.
Rice ($1.50) – extra rice will cost you.
Broth is homey and simple; slightly on the sweet side.
Cutlet was perfectly breaded and the texture was fantastic.
Oddly, they don’t give much cabbage to wrap the meat in.
The dish also came with raw garlic, sliced jalapeños and an addictive sauce.
You will want a refill of that sauce!
Another solid Korean spot. Make sure you get the cutlet.
