While no order at this Koreatown restaurant is complete without their namesake knife-cut noodles, make sure to focus on their other dishes as well. Namely, their yulmu bibimbap. It’s a unique dish - instead of white rice, you’ll get a heartier barley grain, then a mountain of yulmu, or young radish, kimchi, and spicy clam soup. It turns into quite a soup-y dish, which you might not be used to with bibimbap, but is thoroughly enjoyable - like your handsome, seaward husband just returned from a trip on his boat (we’re thinking Robert Pattinson in The Lighthouse vibes) and prepared this meal with all his findings. What? We can dream, can’t we?
