This restaurant is truly a testament to the entrepreneurial spirit of Toronto's Asian immigrant communities. The locale is a former Burger King (it moved a few doors down) and the new owners did not change the décor. Although the logos are gone, it still has the ugly colour scheme and uncomfortable furniture of a fast food restaurant. The menu is in fact a collection of digital pictures pasted on the wall with captions in Korean and English. Order by telling the guy at the cash the number of the dish you want. Nevertheless, the food is delicious and momma cooks it up fresh for you. All the dinner plates come with not-so-traditional Korean side dishes: rice, kimchi, tofu with soy sauce, marinated bean sprouts and greens and, for some reason, a large helping of macaroni salad. The price is very cheap, however, and you'll leave full and satisfied.

Favorite Dish: The bulgogi (suatéed beef stirfry) is great and can be made spicy or mild. On Fridays you can get the "dinner special": CAD20 for two dinners and a bottle of soju or 5 beers. Only get the soju if you can handle alcohol stronger than vodka.

Address: Bloor St W 3 doors east of Bathurst
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: Bathurst Street station
Price: less than US$10
Rating: 4
