There’s almost always a line outside of this Korean comfort-food joint specializing in fried or broiled fish and hearty soups. The curt but efficient staff will take your order while you wait so that the food arrives as soon as you sit. Most tables go for the bo ssam, fatty slabs of steamed pork that you can wrap in cabbage with daikon kimchee and garlic, but don’t miss the kalgooksoo soup with chewy hand-rolled noodles. Also good: Boodae jeon gol (stew with rice cakes, ramen noodles, kimchee, and hot dog); seafood pancake with peppers.
