This is a very odd place. It was very popular with the neighborhood kids, that's for sure...had a kind of 50's neighborhood diner vibe going on. Their specialty is "cheese mock" which I could find zero references to on the Internet. So maybe this is an original idea?

What is a cheese mock you ask? Well, it starts with a thin, crep-like base (slightly sweet) within which is placed any combination of sweet or savory items. How is this different than a crepe? I'm not sure...but apparently it is. I had a kalbi beef and chicken curry cheese mock. It took forever to make them...and it was stiflingly hot in there. When they finally arrived, I found out that he apparently thought I wanted them to go, so I ended up with everything in a to go bag. I proceeded to eat them there, very carefully, as the temperature of the cheese inside was molten. In addition to the cheese and meat, there were other things: mayonnaise, lettuce, fusulli noodles, camembert cheese. It was surprisingly tasty, though I wish the base crepe wasn't so sweet. I also got some sesame balls, which were very homemade and tasted great.
While I'm rating the food an Ok, I still really liked the place for its unique qualities. If I lived in the area I'd probably be a regular.
