This tiny shop on Western specializes in hot and cold Korean soups. On unbearably hot summer days, we go for the cold soybean variety - a refreshing, white-brothed noodle soup with nutty flavor. When the thermostat dips down to 60 degrees, order the kalguksu. It’s basically a hot chicken noodle soup, with thick, hand-cut (and delicious) noodles. This is a great solo lunch spot.
