this past weekend i took my friends to jeollado (our best new discovery as of yet downtown.) upon entering the restaurant, we were not forced to wait and were seated promptly. the cartoon style artwork, video art played by the projection and the longevity of the restaurant, creates a casually cool, trendy, and modern atmosphere. the service is excellent- the wait staff is very attentive and the owner is a pretty cool guy. for dinner, we ordered the house rolls off the menu and asked the owner for his own recommendations, at which he continuously sent out both innovative korean and japanese fusion dishes. Absolutely Delicious and Ridiculously Cheap! My favorite part of the night was when we were used into the karaoke/ party room in the back. Dimly light by a hanging disco ball and tiny lights circumnavigating a pole, and greeted by large anime characters painted upon the wall, the karaoke room boasts over 2,000 songs!! i was surprised to find old time favorites by stevie wonder and cher interspersed with my favorite pop artists beyonce and britney spears! the staff once again was very attentive, quick to supply us with drinks as we made a fool of ourselves belting out to madonna's ""material girl."" i was told that just last month, penelope cruz and her entourage graced the karaoke/party room herself (pretty awesome!) overall my experience was a two thumbs up! i cant wait for next weekend to relive this experience all over again.
Pros: house rolls, non sushi dishes such as soft tofu stews and korean pancakes, karaoke/party room
