UPDATE: Elephant permanently closed its doors in late 2015. Its old space has been taken over by Saeng Saeng Gimbap as of spring 2016.

Located on the southwest corner of Western & 9th for what could’ve been three decades, Kokkiri Bunshik was known for serving very cheap Korean dishes 24 hours a day. Cheap, as in $5 for a serving of naengmyeon.

To-go orders were possible with an additional charge. Cash only.

Kokkiri is the Korean word for “elephant” and an eatery of the same name is located in Mapo-gu district of Seoul, the capital of South Korea.

Note that Elephant Snack Corner was closed by the Health Department from July 30 to August 2 in 2013 on account of vermin harborage and infestation.
