I arrived a little before 6pm and was able to snag a seat at the bar for happy hour. For a Tuesday night, the bar area was pretty busy! I ordered a dozen oysters to start off. I got the oysters very quickly and they were hugee! The picture I took don’t do it justice. There was no grit or sand in them what so ever. I polished them off like a pro.

Next I got some chicken wings because you can’t go wrong with korean chicken wings. The great thing about these types of chicken wings is there’s plenty of flavor on the fried skin without the messiness of a sauce. Tried the soy and garlic and it was not too salty or garlicy. I would definitely want to try the hot and spicy next time!

By the time I left (a little before 7pm) it got fairly busy, even in the dining room. I would definitely come back for the dollar oysters and chicken wings!

Pretty decent kimbap for the price. I also enjoyed the rice cakes with fried squid as it wasn’t too spicy! If you want a quick, cheap, korean lunch, this is the place to go.

$8.99 for a heaping of chicken, a bowl of rice, some cucumbers, daikon soup and one canned drink is a bargain. I passed by Eim Elmhurst this weekend on my way to get a haircut in Elmhurst. Due to the derailment of the F train, I had to take a 7 and walk about a mile to the salon. Since it was such a nice day, it gave me a chance to check out a bunch of the stores on the way there! The chicken was moist and great with the mild spicy sauce. The ginger rice and gizzards were a bonus addition to the dish. I would definitely come by again for Hainanese chicken the next time I am in the area.
