OC Weekly's Description
The Past Memories' yogurt soju is just as it sounds-a drink initially as
harmless as breast milk since it's made with that yogurty soft drink popular
with Asian children, Calpico or some Korean facsimile of it. Poured into
shot glasses and swigged, it's inordinately easy to drink. Each sip is only
weakly alcoholic, tasting of Squirt and skim milk, and sweetly soothing,
especially when your tongue has been lashed by too much spicy kimchi. But
factor in more food (especially the fried chicken), the cajoling company of
friends, and the 2 a.m. closing time, and its slowly mounting effects can be
easily underestimated until "The Past Memories" becomes more than just the
Tips from foursquare
Cheese corn, cheese corn, cheese corn!!!
Seafood pancakes are excellent. Not open until 4:30pm
Do not over order!! The portions here are huge enough to feed 2-3 people. Bring a group of friends so you guys can try different dishes.
Did I mention to try the delicious korean bbq ribs?
Try their chicken
