Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

Standard Identity is not your standard café or bar or meat restaurant—it’s a little bit of all three. Their fourth-floor space is a step away from Hongik University Station, overlooking a street full of meat restaurants (you’ll also get more breezes and better views up here). Order a barbecue set a day in advance, and then do as the Spaniards do: siesta until well after 2pm before heading over. At 20,000 won per person you’ll get a full grilled meal: pork neck, sausages, eggplant, mushrooms and pineapple, plus salad and fried rice. Looking for a drink? Standard Identity serves up much more than beer and soju: They've got a bar with imported beers, sangria, cocktails and legit soju made from rice (yeah, like we said, not your standard barbecue joint).
