From an email:

“Due to unforeseen delays in construction as a result of the inclement weather, SEOULSPICE has postponed its grand opening to the general public. Originally planned for the last week of January 2016, the new fast-casual restaurant will officially open on Friday, February 26, 2016. Located in NoMa at 145 N Street NE, SEOULSPICE specializes in Korean comfort food offering a choice-driven menu of quick, healthy, and delicious Korean dishes that are served in a modern setting.

SEOULSPICE’s menu features made-to-order Korean favorites, such as rice bowls (bibimbap) and korritos (kimbap burritos), as well as street tacos and salads. These bases are enhanced with four protein options—beef, chicken, spicy pork, and tofu— and fresh vegetables, including bean sprouts, corn, carrots, cucumbers, Korean radish, kale slaw, and kimchi (pickled Korean cabbage). SEOULSPICE offers four gourmet sauces made in-house—Korean hot sauce, creamy sriracha, cilantro-lime ranch, and ginger-carrot—plus fresh herbs and toppings. The menu also features three sides: “the” egg, marinated in a sweet soy base; avocado; and jars of kimchi.”

    I LOVE places with choice-driven menus.

      You’re right, those force-feeding restaurants in DC have become quite dull.

    How come all the Korean(ish) places in the District (well, minus Bul) focus on bibimbap/bowls? I realize it’s trendy but there are so many other kinds of Korean food…. Bleh.

      agreed, it’s maddening.
      wtf do i need to do to get some K-BBQ and dukbokki in the District?!?!

      • FridayGirl

        THANK YOU.
        Some non-ramen soups would be nice, too…

          +100000000000 on the non ramen soups!

        Go to Mandu!

        • FridayGirl

          Mandu isn’t very good, though, tbh. Bul is much better but I can’t go to semi-fancy sit-down restaurants all the time.

        • The OP Anon

          Mandu sucks. And it doesn’t have real K-BBQ! They just stirfry some bulgogi in the kitchen in a pan. Lame.

          • joowon49

            That is “real” Korean bbq. The vast majority of the time you eat bulgogi in Korean homes, you cook it on the stove. That being said, I agree, Mandu isn’t that great.

    If this is anything like Triple B Fresh then it’s a winner in my book.

  • That One Guy

    In this day and age of fast casual, I don’t know where traditional Korean food would fit in. The cost of operating a BBQ restaurant where people grill food for themselves would, I imagine, be cost prohibitive in comparison to a bibimbap place where quick turnarounds means you can serve a larger volume of customers at potentially better margins.
