“Living in downtown Manhattan, she (Jenny Kwak – owner) was very aware of the lack of Korean restaurants in the area: ‘I thought a Korean restaurant would do well in this part of town because our food is so different.  I also wanted my Mom to be the chef of this restaurant.  She’s very astute, a good business-woman, and, obviously a wonderful cook.  She also has the innate sensibility of being a mother.  She’s very accommodating, caring and nurturing, and this is reflected in the food.’

“Jenny and her mother Myung’s intuitiveness and ambition for opening authentic Korean restaurants have paid off.  They attribute their success to staying true to their culinary roots and feel it is equally important to include culturally inspired ritual as a part of the meal:  ‘Ideally, we want to satisfy the customer and find different ways to get them into the restaurant, educate them, and help them appreciate the varied and vibrant tastes of our cuisine.  The flavors that we us have a real ‘kick’ and are very bold.  Fermented flavors, like that our our kimchi, are extremely addictive.”
