Give us some Korean Fried Chicken and soju, and we’re happy. So we’re very pleased to report the arrival of Ilcha, which translates to “first round” in Korean and is the perfect spot to kick off a night out, with comforting and thoughtful Korean fare and an exciting selection of drinks. Housed in the former Nabe hot pot space, Ilcha has maintained the restaurant’s simple, sleek decor, with the addition of a mural featuring a woman in traditional Korean dress. Korean gastropub dishes dominate, including fried chicken, of course, plus tater tots topped with bulgogi and cheese. But you’ll also find a selection of stews and hot pot options, loaded with soybean paste or kimchi, bulgogi or vegetables and, if you’d like, SPAM, plus a tower of pork belly and fresh oysters served with fresh lettuce and perilla sleeves for wrapping. Pair your feast with premium sojus, beers, or makgeolli, a cloudy rice brew.
