Lee Nam Jang

Lee Nam Jang is a restaurant that specializes in traditional Korean food. It's been in the current neighbourhood for over ten years, but the recipes are the product of three generations of Korean chefs.

Apparently, this style of serving fried rice is very popular in Korea, and I can certainly see why.
