They also offer an iconic side menu with their special kimchi and chanja (spicy cod).

Chicken wings covered in secret sauce is one popular menu item.

    The spicy ramen are amazing. These ramen are really really hot. So nothing for people who aren’t used to spicy food. You can of course order less spicy food, but I recommend the hot ones. Amazing...
