A Korean meal contains such simple and lovely elements — the pickled kimchees, the flavors of ginger, garlic, and bean paste, the barbecued meats, the scallion pancakes, the spicy stews. Mirror of Korea has become a local jewel for capturing the essence of a Korean meal. So much beauty is found in its vast and diverse menu, some dishes more exotic and challenging — blood cake soup, for example — and others simpler and more comfortable, like Kim Chee Fried Rice. The no-nonsense dining room is filled with large tables; bring a group so you can try as many items as possible, since it's nearly impossible to choose just one. The spiciness of the soups and stews is the perfect antidote to a cold day. We are also big fans of its version of steak tartare, Yook Hwae, perfectly spiced with sesame oil and garlic. This is a restaurant that feels very homey. The menu is thorough and thoughtful, and your meal is clearly prepared by the most competent hands.
