Oh Ma Ni - Koreatown

Very VERY small place, there are maybe 5 tables total? And there is a TV on the wall, you can watch Korean program.

Their signature dish is blood sausage (get soondae gook), so make sure to order that (I wish I ordered it). I know, it sounds gross, but it's good.

The lady was super friendly, and she speaks English. When we had some questions, she answered nicely in English.
The lady told us, they don't use MSG, and they make their banchan side dishes everyday (even kimchi) and it's her mother's recipe.


I really liked their kimchi, I asked her if they sell them, she said no, but she gave me some extra to take them home with me.


Dak Gae Jang (Boiled spicy chicken soup) $8.99
I wish there were no dark meat..

Dak Gom Tang (Boiled chicken soup with ginseng) $8.99

rice inside the whole chicken

also garlic, dates, etc

When we asked for more banchan, she also brought us some kind of special preserved fish, she said this is the only place make this side dish. I can't remember the name of the dish.

After we finished eating, she brought us their famous Soondae (blood sausage aka steamed pork intestines) for us to try for free! I'm so grad that I did, because it was really good. I had Soondae at some other Korean restaurant and I didn't like it at all.

That used to be the home of 8th St. Soondae for the longest time. If they are half as good as the other place, should be quite alright.

Gonna add one more, that's the fermented skate wings. Very strong stuff, and I don't dare venture into that territory either.

My father loves the stuff though.
