Seoul Shack, the new Korean soul food kitchen from the Three Muses team, is now open inside of The Dragon's Den, super scooper Todd Price reports. Hours are currently Thursday-Sunday from 5 p.m. until close, but they'll soon be expanding to open on Tuesday and Wednesday as well. Not a fan of dining at a bar? There happens to be a great courtyard for dining outside.
As for the food, expect lots of classic Korean dishes including bibimbap with tofu, pork and beef, Chap Chae (sweet potato cellophane noodles), egg roll variations, and more creative dishes like Korean tacos and Korean fried chicken, all in a budget friendly ($5-$10) price range. There is apparently a proven hangover remedy too: kimchi pork soup.
It's also worth noting that Dragon's Den was bought earlier this year by the Hi Ho Lounge/Maison crew, and they've been doing some major revamps in the right direction, including courtyard updates and new bars.
