Food truck closed in 2014. Opened brick and mortar location in Maryland in 2013.


Beef Bibimbap (Affirmed)

SF’s beef bibimbap is “fantastic” and “highly recommended.” The egg is “the star of the dish” with a flowing yolk. The beef, marinated in a “delightful” Korean barbecue marinade, is “delicious” and “tender” but with “some of the chew expected of Korean-style beef.” The rice is “nicely glutinous, with a bit of crunch around the edges.” The korean chili (gochujang) and pickled vegetables provide a “welcome brightness” and an “interesting contrast.” At $8.50, this is a “good deal.” For the full review, see In re Seoul Food, 3 Catt. 2 (2011).

*Voted a “must try” dish in Best Mobile Gastronomy (The First Savory Edition, 2013).

Korean Superbowl (Remanded)

The “superbowl” consists of “sticky rice, bulgogi marinated steak, jalapeno and Serrano relish, caramelized kimchi, scallion, queso fresco, cheddar, and Korean salsa roja.” While the ingredients were “of the highest quality,” when mixed together, “too many ingredients get lost.” Stick to the more traditional bibimbap. For the full review, see In re Seoul Food, 3 Catt. 1 (2011).

Mushroom and Pork Donburi (Affirmed)

This rice bowl — made with “succulent an earthy” shiitake, oyster, and crimini mushrooms and “tender” and flavorful pork marinated in sake, red wine, and sweet soy — makes for a “satisfying lunch” with “just the right amount of heat.” For the full review, see In re Seoul Food, 16 Catt. 1 (2013).

Yukgaejang, Kimchi and Pork Stew (Affirmed)

The yukgaejang — a spicy soup with shredded beef, scallions, shiitake mushrooms, and other vegetables — is “spicy” and imparts “a terrific depth of flavor” and makes for a “terrific meal.” The kimchi and pork stew is made with a “proper” but not terribly “pungent” kimchi. The broth is “spectaular, possessing, like the yukgaejang, true depth of flavor.” The bits of pork are “delicious.” For the full review, see In re Seoul Food, 5 Catt. 4 (2012).
