Little Korea – Ellice Avenue

Little Korea is another in my list of recent revisit posts. It’s a good 6.5 years since I last visited. I decided to stop by recently for an early evening meal. original review The restaurant wasn’t very busy when I arrived, and I had no trouble getting a table. They weren’t overly busy the whole time I was there, but there were three or four tables filled at all times. One thing I liked right off the hop.
