Downtown Korean spot Hoya Korean Kitchen has undergone a massive makeover.
The restaurant’s sometimes confusing counter service has been replaced by table service – hooray!
The menu, too, has been updated. In addition to its signature rice bowls, Hoya now offers revamped renditions of its ramen, bibimbap and bulgogi.
Several authentic Korean dishes have been added to the menu as well, including japchae (stir-fried sweet potato noodles), soon tofu stew (curdled soft tofu in a spicy broth) and tteokbokki (spicy stir-fried rice cakes).
At lunch, there are “combo boxes” — bento box-like meals consisting of miso soup, kimchi, dumplings, rice and your choice of chicken, tofu, beef bulgogi, pork, teriyaki salmon or short ribs.
The bar menu has also been expanded and now features eight varieties of sake, Japanese and Korean beers and nearly a dozen wines.
