my entire meal the other day was cold. I was with friends and didn't want to be "that guy," so I just ate it without complaint.

kimchi fritters were great, though. even at room temperature. the skirt steak over rice was just meh.

Perfect spot for the neighborhood. Friendly staff, quick service, nice space and on first visit the food was very good. Hope it sticks!

Had the Galbi and the veggie ramen. Both were delicious! I have to agree that the price is on the higher end. None the less, great addition to the neighborhood.

Stopped by here yesterday for lunch and ordered the galbi bibimbap. It was excellent. Friendly staff and quick service. "I will be back."

Thanks for the recommendations. Tried the seafood fritters, the spicy tuna roll, and the spicy pork. All excellent. My pooch wasn't happy - no leftovers. Not even the rice.


Not to hijack the thread, but can anyone provide some feedback on Broa? I had forgotten about them and this just reminded me I should go check them out. Any particular highlights or must-try items?

Are there side dishes included with those? Seems pricey if not.



Should come with a whole variety of 'ban chan' but looking at the pics it is only a tiny small assed serving of kimchee.

Place looks like a hack joke of what the real deal is.

Hope they did not lock into a long lease as there are folks like myself who cant count the times I've thrown down in Korea for real local food and rocked Flushing Queens for some BiBi Smack down when in the mood.




That's pretty cool that you go all the way to Korea for authentic food, going to Flushing must be a cake walk. I'm the same way myself. I go to Maine whenever I have a craving for lobster and then hit up Vermont for a real throw down on maple syrup and sharp cheddar when I'm in the mood. The only way people like us can get the best is to be a douchebag about it.

I just wanted to add that on the square receipt you receive from the restaurant there was a place for feedback-- I noted the fritters were grease soaked (I assume that has to be a one off because no one would eat them). I didn't ask for or expect a refund but they did refund the fritters and reported that they would try to maintain better consistency. I just hate reporting only negative things if the owner tries to correct it.

I want to try Morgan Seafood next!

I tried it the other day, I think it is a welcome addition that fits a need. However, the galbi was too sweet (sugary) and I felt the seafood fritter did not have enough seafood. The spicy tuna was a novel, delicious Korean take on that dish. I look forward to trying the other dishes they offer.

@iGreg
bean paste (Doenjang) is never used in Bibimbap, it's Ghochoojang that's used. Doenjang is only used for bean paste soup or paste for vegetable wraps in Korean food.

As a Korean I was reluctant to try this place given I grew up eating home made Korean food by very talented women, tend to be a harsher critique of my own cultural food. But I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious their Bibimbap was.

With their simple clean modern decor, friendly owner and delicious food at great prices, I will be coming back many times over in future.

I wish this place loads of success!

The good: the bibimbap wasn't bad (fresh cut veggies) but it lacked flavor-- I got it for take out and was given no sauce with it (basic serves it with a yummy siracha like sauce). The ramen was substandard and completely flavorless. The fritters were inedible-- absolutely soaked in grease/oil. I can't believe this is the same place others rave about. It wasn't even busy.



Oh that is terrible,

Expecting a yummy siracha sauce in place of the correct bean paste (Doenjang)

And then ordering Japanese Ramen in a Korean joint.

The Horror !
The Horror !

Maybe try Flushing, Queens

The Misses and I stopped in last night for dinner. Food was great and later that night we we're already planning what we'd be ordering next time. Great addition to the neighborhood.

Here are some pictures I took at Ahris Kitchen when we stopped by earlier in April during the soft opening (for Kickstarter donors). Great food, you should definitely try this place out.

seafood fritter is always good

a lot of non koreans get fanatic about the spicy tofu stews. Not sure how good it is at Ahri's, but in k towns there are restaurants that only specialize in it.

surprised I didn't see dumplings or japchae on the menu.
