"Spicy, porky, comforting classic noodle dish executed perfectly every time. Love the open kitchen, as we always grab lunch at the counter overlooking the hard working crew."

"However they are prepared that day, it's a great way to start a meal at Father's Office. You can eat these for hours, but you want to make sure you save room for that juicy burger."
The Office Burger

"For me, the OG of the 'new' burger is still the best. Only a perfectionist like chef Sang Yoon could have created such deep satisfaction. Perfectly, but not too finely, ground dry-aged beef is cooked medium-rare and topped with a jam of caramelized onions and bacon, plus a little Gruyère, Maytag blue, and a bite of arugula. Can I have one now?"
