Koguryo is a Korean restaurant in the space formerly occupied by Bokka, the eatery that was famous for blowfish.
The menu has no fish, but focuses on
Shabu-Shabu & Korean BBQ (mostly beef and pork).
This is NOT an all-you-can eat restaurant.
A “combo” of pork belly for two persons is $49.99.
That’s the expected price range of a minimum order for a table. Two persons.
Occasionally, there are day specials consisting of barley rice and dwenjang (soybean paste) wraps.
