The sweet, comfortable East Village lunch box is decked out with Ikea-like tables and lots of fresh flowers. The menu brims with all the greatest hits: bulgogi, scallion-and-seafood pancakes, spicy stews and bibimbap, as well as less familiar dishes like mo mill moochim, chilled buckwheat-noodle salad; and yuk gae jang, a high-octane, superpeppery shredded-beef stew.
