I can’t hold in my excitement for yet another Korean eatery in DC! The day after my birthday, the comfort-food establishment opened its door with free food and sold out that evening! The next day they re-opened with a fully stocked kitchen and plenty of hungry customers eager to try bulgogi filled burritos.
I ventured to NoMa solely to try Seoulspice. It’s a contemporary pad with beautiful lights hanging throughout the space and plenty of seating for any small or large party. It’s a fast-casual joint similarly set up like Chipotle, you choose a style (bowl, korrito, taco or salad), pick a protein (beef, chicken, spicy pork, tofu), top it off with your choice of veggies (there’s so many to choose from!) and add a final touch of sauce and dry toppings. Extras (not included in the price of a style meal) is “the egg,” tub of kimchi and avocado.
There’s also pre-chosen signature combinations to help anyone who can’t decide what to eat. Don’t forget a beverage before checking out! It’s great to see that yogurt-soju cocktail (my favorite!) comes on tap, with other Asian imported drinks also available. Health nut? There’s house-made juices for you too.
Justin ordered a bibimbap, rice bowl with spicy pork with bean sprouts, kimchi, radish, avocado, egg, cilantro and cilantro-line ranch.
That egg is to die for.
It oozes perfectly and pairs well with the entire dish. It’s a unique twist as a fried egg is the usual bibimbap component.
I ordered tacos with beef, tofu and spicy pork and added bean sprouts, radish, kale slaw, kimchi, creamy sriracha, avocados, cilantro and scallions.
The dish tastes clean and it’s a great take on Korean-American food. Stop by for lunch or dinner and take a look at No Kings Collective‘s artwork (the pictures don’t do it justice).
Seoulspice is located on 145 N Street NE. Open 7 days a week from 11 am to 10 pm.
