Spotlight on: Urban Seoul


Urban Seoul

“Borderless kitchen” Urban Seoul—originally at the Diamond Jamboree in Irvine, new at Irvine Spectrum Center—blends Korean and Mexican flavors. The delightfully complex pork-belly tacos (with kimchee and gochujang aioli) and elote skillet (grilled corn with queso fresco, Korean chili flakes and lots more) skew Mexican. Under “Seoul Food,” start with the spicy rice cakes—tiny, crispy, mochi-like spheres in a delicious broth. The popular Urban 3b (“bibimbap, our way”) comes with choice of ingredients such as gogi and tofu plus half a dozen vegetables served on white or purple rice; use the chili-paste dressing liberally. Sip on a watermelon-mint lemonade or frozen soju margarita—both very refreshing.
