Thanks guys.

    Judah runs east-west. Quick search show no Korean restaurants on Judah. Closest is Tofu Village on Irving, north of Judah.

      you're likely thinking of toyose on noriega

        Those dishes aren't that unusual.

        A whole grilled fish is probably yellow croaker or Jogi Gui

        Short ribs in braised a sweet sauce is Galbi Jjim

        Both are pretty common.

        Anything else to set this place apart?

          hmm, it should be very comfort foodie, maybe a little cash only, and it should look pretty nondescript from the outside.

          i wish i saved the link for it. sorry guys.

          i'm pretty sure it's not toyose.

          damn, guys,

          i think this was the place:
          (shoot, it's a bourdain fave joint, is that a bad thing) ?

          i'm pretty sure though not positive that this is it:

            Just lost their lease and closed last month. May reopen somewhere someday.

              Thanks Robert, i guess i waited too long.

              btw, are the dishes served here pretty sui generis so that they are not really being served in other parts of the city ?

                I thought the most unique were two braised dishes, the Dwaeji Galbi Jjim or braised Pork Ribs and So Kori Jjim or braised Ox-tails.

                The beef short rib with sweet sauce dish you mentioned is the more typical braised meat dish you find.
