    I read Chicago Tribune Food & Dining recent New Koreatown roundup with great interest, some familiar names, some new, a few went on a try list but one 90-word capsule by the amazing Louisa Chu jumped to the top of the list with Ms. Chu's statement "I'd eat here every day if I could" Korean Spoon in Glenview. She referenced a lunch set of gimbap, tteokbokki and sundae for $10.99 with tea, banchan and soup, this was an amazing meal.

    Coupled with the friendliness of Owner Mr. Kim, even if he did wonder about the large non-Asian enjoying Korean blood sausage and only slightly mispronouncing gochujang, ultra reasonable prices, soups, banchan, kimbop, raw marinated crab to go, parking, plenty of comfortable seating, even if most of their business seems to be pickup/takeaway, it was a wonderful lunch which I will be repeating soon.

    Korean Spoon, Count me a Fan!

    The referenced Trib article is an excellent piece of journalism!

    Glad Jeon Joo on Dempster in Morton Grove is getting some love in the abovementioned Trib article. To me it concocts the best rendition of goat stew with perilla leaves, with the kicker being the waitress afterwards mixes the goat remnants of the huge wok with kimchi, egg and rice to make a fried rice the likes of which are transcendant. Gotta get back there!

    Ms. Chu offers two spellings in the linked Korean Spoon review, one of which is sundae. Sundae ocures frequently in Google searches as well. Korean Spoon uses SoonDae on the menu, guess I should have used that.

    Either way thanks for pointing out what's really important about the lovely delicious Korean Spoon, how one interprets Korean phonetically. Maybe we can discuss what part of Glenview the restaurant is in next, the Heights, Hills, Harbor, Hillside? How about the hours, 4-hours a day 4-days a week might not be convenient to everyone, plus they don't have diet soda or iced tea. Korean Spoon does take credit cards, blessed be the gods of Kardashian for small favors.

    It really is a bummer when someone takes the time to provide an information-rich post and it's met with such an unhelpful, pedantic response. This seems to be happening around here with some frequency lately and frankly, it's disappointing and tiresome.

    Please remember that we are a community and that we rely on each other to share information. If our posts are met with unhelpful, non-supportive responses, substantive posts will dwindle and there will be far less useful information available here.

    And in addition, neither "soondae" nor "zoondae" have ever been standard Romanizations as far as I know--definitely never seen 'z' for 's,' and even the double-o is non-standard. Sundae is how it ought to be spelled in the most updated system, which has been around for twenty years and is what I learned in college, as well as McCune-Reischauer, which dominated before. Obviously we don't all have time to learn all the systems for all the languages, and I get that blood sausage and hot fudge sundaes are two streams that ought never to be crossed. No matter which we are discussing, though, I think we all want that 'sundae' kind of love.

    I thought the point was simply that that particular phonetic spelling suggests that there's an ice cream dessert involved. :lol:

    Two of us ordered for three at Korean Spoon and had a terrific lunch including deliciously messy raw marinated crab, a couple of bowls of sundubu and pictured combo.

    Korean Spoon, second verse same as the first.
