Mill Korean

Mill Korean is a Korean restaurant on Broadway at 113th St.

This restaurant used to be a greasy spoon restaurant run by Orthodox Jews. Incongruously, they also sold gum and pornographic magazines at the counter. The chef, Lupe, would prepare a particularly greasy dish called "the Lupe special". At some point in the early 90s they hired a Korean sous-chef. Eventually a single page of Korean items was taped to the wall-menu next to the other items. After that it was a slippery slope to the present incarnation (from "the Mill restaurant" to "the Mill Korean restaurant").

The Mill Korean's menu is cryptic, and the food is pretty poor. You might feel like trying it out when you get bored of the same old restaurants and the same old food. However, it's probably best to stay away because the place has 51 violation points! [Update: Now it has only two points according to the latest inspection.]

According to New York Magazine, "[this] serene and dimly lit... family-owned joint is ideal for hushed chatting. Sup on chill-chasing soups like soon dubu — soft tofu stew with pork and kimchee cabbage – and plump mandu dumplings in a spicy beef broth. If you’re not rushing back to midterms or the ER, consider a shot of soju, the vodkalike Korean rice spirit."
