If you combined a health food store and a Korean barbecue place, this is what you’d get. Up front, there’s a takeout counter where you can get a juice, and in the back there’s a high-ceilinged dining room. Some of the tables have grills for barbecue, but the barbecue is optional. You can always just have a bowl of rice and veggies or some Korean fried chicken. What’s different about this place is that they have a bunch of vegan and paleo options. So if paleo fried chicken sounds good, you now know where to find it.

If that Dyson guy came up with Korean BBQ, Takashi is what it would look like. Modern, weird, excellent.
It seems like lately, all of the Korean food we’ve been eating has been of the “trendy re-interpretation” variety. While we’re fine with that, occasionally we get a craving for a more traditional meal, and for that, we head to Madangsui.
Oiji is a new East Village Korean restaurant. Did we need another one of those? Apparently, yes, we did.
