OC Weekly's Description

Urban Seoul at Irvine’s Diamond Jamboree uses proven Korean-Mexican flavor combos as a baseline. Get the quesadilla. In fact, do not go to Urban Seoul without ordering one; it’s the greatest non-taco Korean-Mexi invention since Kogi’s Blue Moon Mulita. Urban Seoul uses an actual kimchi pancake—a thin, vaguely spicy, delicate crepe-like creation—in lieu of a flour tortilla, then stuffs it with juicy grilled chicken, mozzarella and Cheddar cheese. It's crispy, but more important is that it tastes like a bizarre omelet served with ambrosial kimchi sour cream. Yet, Urban Seoul leans more Korean than Kogi. Though it’s called Urban 3B, the bibimbap with a poached egg is still very proper bibimbap. Its rendition of tteokbokki, a common Korean street food of chewy-as-gum rice cakes stir-fried in a sweet-and-spicy hell sauce, has the rice cake flash-fried first. And the so-called chicken lollipops--kinder, gentler Buffalo wings--are still served with tart cubes of pickled daikon. But there may not be a better traditional dish here than the japchae mari—stir-fried glass noodle encased in deep-fried seaweed stogies that end up tasting like the Korean version of tater tots.
