ANASTACIA URIEGAS/THRILLIST

Koriente Restaurant

Austin
Korean Restaurant
$$$$

Sporting the motto, "my mom started this restaurant because she hates to cook," this Asian-inspired eatery is devoted to preparing healthy, MSG-free, allergy-friendly plates to families who prioritize conscious eating -- but who wish someone else would do all the work. The wood-paneled, red-painted restaurant is charmingly local, with standing lamps, checkered table cloths, and a well-tended wrap-around garden, while the homestyle kitchen feels equally domestic. The place serves bowls of warm sweet potato noodles topped with sautéed veggies and fresh avocado, or steamed rice with pan-seared tofu and broccoli, all doused in soy-based sauces that are miraculously low on grease and sodium (but not low on flavor). The place even offers a full menu of gluten-free items -- and the vast majority of the colorful, vegetable-centric entrees come for under 10$.
