Korean food got a fine dining shot in the arm with Jukskuchae last year. This year Tokki is bringing a more casual creativity to Korean fare, open now at Donki Mall.
Tokki, which translates as "rabbit," appears throughout the restaurant, with rabbit knicknacks and illustrations. The space is cozy and inviting, dimly lit with warm lights, plenty of indoor plants, an olive green and white color scheme, textured cement walls, and did we mention a projector playing Korean cartoons?
The menu is fun and shows the playful side of Korean dining. There’s shareable plates like the Corn Kimchi Jeon, which is Korean pizza with kimchi generously covered with cheese and corn for an epic cheese pull; Snow Yukke is fried seaweed with marinated beef, topped with egg yolk and cheese; and their Bulgogi Fries, kind of like a Korean version of nachos, feature sweet and spicy marinated pork on top of crispy thick fries. For a heartier dish there’s the Galbi Jim, which are 5-hour braised pork ribs stewed with homemade sauce and served with mashed potatoes.
They also do traditional Korean liquor pairings, including honey coconut makgeolli, which is Korean-style rice wine served with honeycomb—yes, the ones making the rounds on everyone's TikTok—and signature soju highballs.
