Dong Ne

If you walk into Dong Ne not knowing what it’s all about, a wall full of colorful cartoon drawings of Korean dishes will make it clear. This Lakeview corner restaurant has a menu full of fried bites like crispy twigim and pajeon, along with heartier options like loaded soups and kimchi fried rice. And though nothing here will cause a culinary epiphany, the food is still enjoyable, particularly the savory and slightly spicy soondubu with seafood. Plus, since it’s usually not super busy, it’s a decent alternative to the more frequently packed Korean spots in the area like Crisp or Del Seoul.
