delicious korean in providence

i'm afraid to let the word out, but there's a really great korean place on benefit street, inside a convenience store. the sign says solomon market, but at night, the place turns into a restaurant. service isn't perfect, but the food is great. i've had the squid with rice, which is spicy and full of tender squid and mussels. my friend has had both the stone pot bi bim bap and an item on the menu that includes rice cake, chicken, sweet potatoes, and carrots (sadly, i can't recall the name). all have been great, and the portions are good-sized.
i was there one monday night and it was packed; the following monday it was quiet...
thanks for the insider info. i had heard of this place from a friend who LOVED it, and forgot about it. will definitely try and report back.
This place is terrific! We drive from Hartford to eat the fantastic stone pot bi bim bap (with tofu). Highly recommended.
Hey, thanks! I drove by the other day and saw the sign, and wondered what Solomon's market was doing, thinking they could cook Korean food, but now I'll go try it! Oh boy...
Yup, it really is excellent, and is the absolute, perfect definition of a low-key, stealthy, chowhound find.
That said, if you're going to go, make sure you can withstand the blast of a fully authentic, spicy Korean dinner. This was one of only two Korean restaurants I've been to outside of NYC where I needed copious water to get through the evening. I can often withstand the spiciest of meals, but this one was a challenge.
