Pojangmacha. It may sound strange now, but this is a word you will come to know in 2015, thanks to the opening of BUL from the Sakuramen guys. It’s the term for the street food stalls in Korea that people gather around for bites to go along with their beer. BUL captures this scene with a menu dazzling with Korean and Japanese street food and bar snacks, in addition to hot, steamy, comforting bowls of pork belly fried rice. But before you go wild with all that, start by selecting which meat-on-a-stick will make you the happiest. BUL, which means "fire" in Korean, serves dinner and brunch, and their hangover soup means business. Note: You’ll have to wait until late January/early February to try their sake, soju, and cocktail menu. Right now it’s just the soft stuff.
