The name of this mostly-outdoor bar/restaurant roughly translates to “butthole,” so it’s definitely a frills-free spot. It fills up on weekend nights, and it should be your first stop on a night out, since the food is perfect for all the drinking you’ll be doing - things like kimchi seafood pancakes and honey fried chicken. The patio is definitely smoky (you’re allowed to smoke, and everyone does), but if that’s something you’re cool with, welcome to your new favorite place.
