People are here for one thing: Gukbap - a clear pork-broth soup that comes mostly unseasoned, but with a big spread of sides like kimchi, salted shrimp, and thinly-sliced pork belly that you can add to kick it up. At lunchtime, older couples and people who work nearby fill the tables in this little strip mall spot, and if you’re looking for a quick lunch, this is the spot.
