Inspired by Korean streetside tents that serve soju and snacks, the casual bar, which has an alfresco dining area, also serves popular street bites. Pair your drinks with some Spicy Rice Cakes (U.P. $10++) AKA tteokbokki and Fish Cake Soup (U.P. $10++), perfect for rainy days. There’s also Kimchi Cheese Fries ($15++), which features crispy fries paired with zingy kimchi and topped with stretchy cheese.
Alternatively, visit after 9pm and share the Asahi Beer Tower ($68++), which includes one free soju, with your beer-loving friends. Or if you’re trying to watch your alcohol intake, go light with a pint of Asahi, affordably priced at $12++.
