While this decidedly unglamorous Valley cafe is a reliable option for a well-priced, convenient kimchi jjigae or bulgogi plate, the real one-two punch is an all-day meal deal that pairs bibim or mul naengmyeon with a plate of tasty barbecued kalbi (beef short ribs). The buckwheat noodles may come a bit messy here, but they’re topped with nicely-arranged slices of mu radish and topped with a downward-facing hard-boiled egg. Afterwards, you can stay cool in the air condition by belting out K-pop at next-door Carnival Karaoke.
