Woo Chon Korean Restaurant

Woo Chon 우촌 is a cool place. I've eaten here a couple of times, but this last time I tried their fantastic bowl of Soondubu 순두부 찌개(spiced-up tofu stew with pork), and boy is it tasty. Believe it or not, Woo Chon has a breakfast special of there scrumptious dish for $4.99, but you gotta get there before 10 am. I highly recommend it; definitely worth hitting, if you can get over the idea of eating something so rich in the morning. But then again, sausage, eggs, and toast isn't really that much lighter, is it?
Here's a pic of soondubu that I got over at the now FatMan Seoul's now defunct blog. It's not Woo Chon's but just to give you an idea.
Woo Chon is located right across from the Flushing Library on Kissena Blvd. They've got their own flashy little website, although it seems to only mention their Manhattan branch. As an interesting aside, it is owned and operated by Yonbyon 연변 (also spelled Yanbian; i.e. Chinese of Korean descent), although I don't know if that's true as well with the Manhattan branch.

Food: A+
Service: B+
Atmosphere: B
Cost: A+ (for the breakfast special)
