I was looking at the menu on the side of this Korean cart and thought the Bugolgi Bowl looked really good. I got that -$6 with white rice. The server was Latino and the guy dealing the money looked Italian. Not that they aren’t allowed to make Korean food, but I wonder how they’ll fare against all the Asians around the corner on Korea Way serving Korean food. My guess is that they’d do better away from that street.
The Bugolgi Bowl didn’t quite look like the photo, but in a white styrofoam container. The guy scooped a ton of the juice in there. It was pretty much soup with rice and beef. Tastes alright, just soupy. It isn’t until now that I realize that the bugolgi photo on the cart is a photo I took from KOFOO. Maybe that’s why I thought it looked so good. They tricked me …or I tricked me!

…I see UltraClay just wrote about this cart the other day. His looks less soupy.
