This Korean noodle house, an L.A. import, is an exciting addition to Asiatown, with an accessible menu of noodles, soups, dumplings, and bibimbap (a rice bowl loaded with meat and vegetables). Order this to go: We orchestrated our meal mindfully. For instance, we quickly tucked into hot steamed dumplings, thoughtfully packaged, the delicate dough stuffed with well-seasoned pork and shrimp. Likewise, we chose the cook-at-home kalguksu: super-long knife-cut noodles, chicken broth to cook them in, and a tidy container of chicken, slivered vegetables, and cute little pork dumplings. Bulgogi bibimbap, loaded with smoky-sweet beef piled atop fresh cucumbers, carrots, sprouts, and radish, proved a worthy rendition and made for fabulous leftovers. Pro tip: Go to the website to get the full menu, with descriptions and pictures. Once you click “order now” the photos vanish.
