    So now we have Korean frozen yogurt and Korean hamburgers. How come there’s no place in Arlington to get Korean-Korean food? Does the kimchi smell violate some kind of zoning rule?

  • Katie

    Seriously. I don’t want a Korean burger.

    Gimme Korean BBQ!

  • Clarendude

    I’d like to see a whole store devoted to different kinds of Kimchi! Or, maybe all fermented vegetables.

  • DontTreadOnMe

    Fairfax has tons of foreign foods for those who want it. Let’s not destroy Arlington too.

    • Clarendude

      Foreign foods ? You mean like Pizza ?

  • Katie

    Do Koreans make cupcakes?

  • LP

    Give me some BonChon in Arlington and I’ll be set!

    Mmm, wish we’d get a Korean taco place like the ones they’ve got in LA – bulgogi to go!

  • TGEoA

    They should open up next to Wylie Wags.

  • MC

    I’d rather have a Shake Shack.

    what’s a bonchon? .. isn’t cafe asia a mix of all oriental foods? why would we need a korean-korean place when we’ve already got an all-in-one joint; the last thing we need is a bunch of suped up accords and civics zipping up and down our streets.
