For $13, you can top your choice of white or brown rice with bean sprouts, steamed spinach, pickled daikon, carrot shavings, scallions, sesame seeds, nori, savory-sweet beef and ssamjang (a thick, spicy paste). The result is a perfect harmony of flavors and textures. Thirsty? The earthy barley iced tea is refreshing, and if it sounds weird you can try a sample before you commit to drinking a full cup.
