Perfect spot for anyone seeking to subject themselves to an evening of spicy S&M food foreplay. The Dukkboki specialist chain hails from Korea with a couple of outlets in NYC and the LA branch opened recently last Nov. Relatively small restaurant. Their specialty is the tongue numbing spicy offerings centered around Dukkboki.
The option of heat levels are mild, original and challenge. We settled on the mild ‘Yup O’ (higher ratio of fish cakes) Dukkboki, original chicken feet, fried spam and a couple of rice balls. The Dukkboki and chicken feet are the hottest dishes I’ve eaten in a while. Flavors were good but the heat level just made things quite unbearable. A couple of young Korean guys seated next to us were literally crying for their mommies mid-way through their ‘original’ heat level order.
Worth checking out if you love spicy food, but you have been forewarned.
