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.
