This sleepy porridge spot in Koreatown is a great place for a work lunch, a casual weeknight dinner, or tearing up at the adorable elderly couples eating at the table next to you. It’s a quiet spot, serving lots of different types of porridge - including pumpkin, black sesame, and red bean. Our favorites, though, are the ones with ginseng chicken and mixed seafood - filled with abalone, shrimp, and mussels. The porridge itself is thick, not at all mushy, and particularly good when you season it with the marinated beef and kimchi banchan.
