You’ll have a field day texting this one’s moniker when you recommend it to your friends, but recommend it you must. The name quite literally means “Mom” in Korean; and sure enough, portraits of modern pop culture icon moms like Ali Wong and Marge Simpson line the walls of this Sunset spot. In the same vein, the menu peppered with Korean classics and served family-style, is as small and inviting as it gets. Transcendent kimchi jjigae arrives bubbling hot with soft tofu, tender pork belly, tangy cabbage and a heady broth; while the ultra-savory kalbi is marinated in sweet garlic soy for 48 hours, resulting in exceptionally flavorful prime short rib. On warm days, the back patio is the place to be, with large picnic tables perfect for sharing.
