Another Korean Izakaya I've been wanted to go. Mazinga Z is a famous Japanese robot anime.
We had two servers, one is Korean guy and he was very nice, but the other girl was little bitchy. Maybe she was latina or something, can't remember. Anyway, the service can be good or bad, depends on the servers.
So we wasn't sure what to order, so we asked to our nicer server (a korean guy) for popular dishes. He explained and told us popular dishes. I asked if they have any rice dishes and he said rice dishes are very popular and you have to come here earlier, because they sell out.
So we decided what to order, we pressed the button, and the bitchy lady came to take our orders. We ordered 4 things on the menu, she wasn't writing down, and she wasn't paying attention enough, that's why she didn't take our order right and forgot one of our order, and never said sorry.
Also when I asked if they have any hot tea, they said "no, we don't have tea, but we have hot water, it's kinda similar". And brought us warm water. Maybe you can bring your own tea bags.
I don't say the food is delicious, and maybe they are made with pre-made or frozen stuff, but I do like food here.
when you are ready to order, or need the server, press the button
Spicy rice cake with ramen $8.99
Instant noodles, hard boiled egg, rice cake, some veggies. I liked it a lot. I think I'm gonna make this at home.
Fishcake soup $7.99
One of our nicer server recommended Pollack soup, so we decided to order that, but the other server told us they don't have it, so we ordered mussel soup, but the waitress brought us this fishcake soup. I told her we ordered mussel soup, and she said "your friend pointed this on the menu" and walked away. whatever. The soup was like Japanese oden soup and it was fine.
Pork & Kimchi $9.99
Spicy and tasty
