AAA Inspector Notes
The menu is a compendium of traditional Korean comfort foods. If you're not familiar with Korean cuisine, don't be afraid to ask for details since the menu isn't perfectly clear. Most courses have some level of spiciness as they start with a base of dry red pepper chips and include fresh vegetables and rice. Most courses are accompanied by meats or seafood and some type of complex sauces, which are both unique and enjoyable. Don't be surprised by the number of side dish samplers that accompany your entrée; servers bring 12 small plates of vegetables and fruits. The restaurant name means "the five blessings," which are represented in the dining experience: Longevity means you will be here for awhile; wealth suggests that it's inexpensive; health is a focus since there are no artificial flavors and all fresh ingredients; a love of virtue means you'll appreciate the angelic servers here; and a peaceful death means you'll think you've gone to heaven.
