This place is a fantastic addition to the already awesome Korean fare available in this area. If you love rustic in your face Korean joints, it really does not get much better than MBR.

This is a soondae - blood sausage - joint. Pretty much everything on the menu has some form of blood sausage in it, so be prepared!

Having said that the soondae here is the best I've ever had. And so is their kkakdugi. And their prices cannot be beat! If you're in the area and looking for non-bbq Korean goodness, you've gotta check this place out.

      Figured I'd start putting up s'more NNJ joints for 'hounds to check out! I haven't been this impressed with a new Korean joint in a really long time...I love places that do one thing really well (like Peck Peck) and MBR really exemplifies that.

      I tried the soup and the blood sauges but both my husband and I thought they were just ok. We much prefer the blood sausage sold at a little booth inside the Han nam supermarket in Fort Lee. If you are a blood sausage fan, you should definitely try this place...we think it's much much better than the moo bong ri.

        Different strokes for different folks I guess. :) I will definitely check out Han Nam! I never make it there as I always end up finding myself in H Mart.

          There are two places in Han nam that sells blood sausages. Make sure you go to the tiny booth that only sells the blood sausage. if you like organ, make sure you get that too as their liver is really good and never dry. I forget the name of the place but it really is the best Korean blood sausage I've had in US and I've tried a lot of places.

            Wow it's nice to talk to a fellow blood sausage aficionado. :) Just curious, did you try both blood sausages at MBR? I thought the one with greens (perilla?) mixed in to the sausage was so delicious and a genius addition. I've never seen that in soondae before.

            I'll check out Han Nam and report back!

              haha, I grew up eating blood sausage in Korea so I know when I taste a good one. Yes, I tried the both types in MBR..I didn't like the greenish ones at all as they were too mushy and didn't taste like blood sausages at all.

              The little booth at Han nam is in the back of the supermarket in the middle..don't go to the food court in the back where they sell typical takeout prepared foods.

                I got some of the blood sausages you mentioned and they are indeed delicious! They didn't have any liver or other offal yesterday though. :(

                I think they're probably the best regular soondae I've had in a long time...but I think I still prefer the weird green ones at MBR. They're just so...different.

                Thank you for the info! Han Nam also now has a sushi takeout place that's doing half price specials from 4-9pm.

                  I am glad you liked it...funny, that weird green stuff tasted like mushy babyfood..haha i guess everyone does indeed every different taste.
                  Try the liver next time..it is the best one I had in US. Han nam has good quality meat(kalbi) for the prices and loved the 'garlic fluke from jeju island' live fish they filet for you for sashimi...really good.
