    Take our advice: eat the kimchi bacon spam fried rice. They say it's for 2, but we won't judge you if you devour it all yourself!

    Kimchi bacon fried rice and chicken wings are superb. It's sort of tiny, but the flavors make a lasting impressions, particularly the wings.

    The kimchi Bloody Mary is excellent! Also they are definitely open on Sundays—Foursquare you should correct that.

    Small space, so arrive early to snag a table during the lunchtime rush, and order the poke bibimbap bowl

    Technically, a Korean-fusion restaurant, but the bulgogi sliders are seoul good!! Stop by at the bar for an order of these and one of their excellent cocktails.

    Danji in Hell's Kitchen brings the genuine flavors of Korea with some French influence to develop the taste, quality, & visual of each dish. The place offers small but shareable portions.

    The Yellowtail sashimi with Kimchi is out of this world. The pancakes are a great surprise. And don't forget to get a Sangria.

    Watermelon Crush is aptly named & delicious. Paella & hot wings were good but the pork sliders were our favorites.

    Can get pricy, but worth it. Small and intimate. Delicious food. The spare rib is to die for!

    Vegetarians who get teary eyed thinking of forgoing the kimchi, take note! There are several varieties here that nix the fish sauce.

    Danji just gets better and better with each visit. Last meal was a hit. Ask for Bondagi (it's a dish that is typically st. food in Korea), but chef takes it to another level.

    For a light(er) lunch option. Split the tofu to start and get the hwe dup-bop. It's still spicy but the salad and sashimi help balance things out.
