Korean lunch counter at Arirang (Cgy)

I was at Community Natural Foods today and decided to stick my head in Arirang in the Korean complex next door (10th Ave SW just east of 14 St)- I posted last year about having had lunch at their tiny lunch counter there and then it disappeared... well it's back and with a much bigger menu, 10 items and it looks pretty authentic (I'm assuming noodles with pork intestine isn't on a mall food court 'Korean" menu), and it's cheap- $6 for everything, at least as far as I could understand. They have one of my fave comfort dishes which is stir-fried rice cake w/ cabbage and onions and that Korean spicy pepper sauce, and I'll be sure to try it and report back.
I could, I have to clarify, be completely wrong about the pricing. One other thing- there are maybe three seats, so I assume they do takeout.
Did they have those little rice flour cylinder things (rice cakes?). I have no idea what they are called but they used to be in the korean joint where Opus is now. It is in a spicy sauce and they are inch long white cylinder and they have one of the coolest textures I have ever eaten, real starchy.
