Chris reported a while back that Korea Spoon would be the latest sister restaurant to nearby Korean spots all specializing in different things: Miss Korea (Korean BBQ), Izakaya Moku (Korean bar food), and Food Gallery 32 (Korean mall food?). Well, the new restaurant opened its doors last week on 32nd Street and as the name suggests, the speciality here is “things you eat with a spoon.”

The plywood has been up on the old Red Mango space in K-town for months now, and it seems like renovations are now nearing completion. The new restaurant is called Korea Spoon, and based on a reliable source, the menu will focus on seolleongtang, which puts it in direct competition with its next door neighbor, Gahm Mi Oak. According to my sources (although not confirmed), Korea Spoon’s owner is also the same individual who owns slick looking newcomers, Food Gallery 32, Izakaya Moku, and Miss Korea.
I’ve noticed that Gahm Mi Oak’s quality has been slipping lately, so this isn’t an unwelcome change, but I’m a little sad to see K-town undergoing such gentrification. However, only time will tell who’s seolleongtang reigns supreme.
