Won Jo is a small Korean restaurant specializes in Korean noodle soup
Had dinner here with a few friends last week. The servers are friendly but have very limited english. They have very few items on their menu, which is sometimes a good thing. I ordered their noodle soup, which tasted great, and I don't think they use MSG. The broth was very good, and the noodles tasted very fresh. Overall a very good combination. The glaring problem was the lack of content in the soup. It was a huge pot of noodles and great broth, but the pot for 2 had far less meat than what you would typically get with a small pho, for comparison. The pot had maybe 4-6 pieces of thin meat, which could easily fit in your mouth. This amount of filling I find unacceptable, since it was suppose to be big enough for two people, which it was because of the noodles.
I am not certain if i would return, since it was good, but it was just noodles. It was relatively cheap, with a pot good for 2 people at under $20, but it was just noodles and broth.
It's a noodle house and therefore, most of the menu will consist of noodles. But it is very good. Delicious. A bit pricey compared to other Korean noodles, but it is worth it. I'd rather pay that much for these noodles than eat some crap noodles for 1-2 dollars less.
I know that won jo means "original" in Korean, and I can assure you, it is not false advertising.
I recommend it for sure. Even for like a first or second date. haha.,
Another small restaurant of great value.
This place specializes in their "hot pot" style Korean noodle soup. Their kimchi is also excellent!
With a little above 10 dollars it will fill you and your buddies' tummies.
Their servers are nice and attentive too. The first time I was there, I was probably the only customer there who does not speak Korean. The waitress at that time took the time to explain to me how to enjoy the appetizer bibimbab and the other parts of the meal.
The only complaint I have is in the limited selection of its menu. But recently this restaurants started to provide new dishes like pork barbeque and cold noodle. It looks like the selection on the menu will grow as time goes by.
If you love noodle soup, give Won Jo a try. It will not disappoint.
