Counter-service storefront offering extremely cheap Japanese and Korean dishes.

Our Review

It's not going to put Albany Park back on the map as a destination for Korean food, but this spare counter-service operation next door to the great Jaafer Sweets does offer a number of basic Japanese-style dishes and iconic Korean ones at extremely low prices. So you have ramen, gyoza, a teriyaki-style chicken breast, and beef noodles with vegetables, as well as simple plates of bulgogi and rice, daeji bulgogi (spicy marinated pork, here called pigogi), and bibimbap. Gampongi, spicy-sweet deep-fried chicken wings, are hard-fried and not as spicy or sweet as some, but still perfectly respectable. There are also a few quirky side dishes—a half-dozen deep-fried mashed potato croquettes and a big plate of stir-fried cabbage and bacon that, were it not for a hint of chile, wouldn't be out of place in a Polish restaurant. Entrees are between $5 and $7, and the side dishes, like that huge plate of cabbage, don't top $3.25. They come with kimchi and kkakdugi (white radish kimchi), too. Smoothies are around $2, but corn tea is free.
