Choi’s Korean Restaurant Food Picks:
Banchan included 6 items plus a soup and a dessert soup at the end.
GalBi Tang ($8.49) – a spicy soup with vegetables and beef short ribs was the special of the day. Not particularly large, but good enough for lunch and of high quality.
Sun GalBi ($11.50) – grilled tender marinated short ribs were top notch. Nice flavors along with good quantity.
