When compared with Mandoo Bar, its bustling Koreatown sibling, Li Hua is the definition of serenity. Dark-wood paneling and soft lighting lend a monastic feel. The traditional Korean cooking is less restrained: Soon dubu (a stew of silky tofu, squid, clams and shrimp, served with rice) blooms with spice, and delectable galbi (marinated short ribs) are served with an assortment of complimentary banchan, or Korean side dishes, like wok-fried zucchini and roasted seaweed.
