None of the Korean small plates at Mokyo, a casual East Village spot from the people behind Thursday Kitchen, cost more than $15. Each of them involve ingredients you wouldn't typically find mingling together, like truffle salsa verde or pork jowl with kabayaki butter. Mokyo also has alcoholic light-up Capri Suns (which you might recognize from the menu at Thursday Kitchen) available for limited indoor dining, outdoor dining, takeout, and delivery.
