The Good

Namunip Maeul is serving up some of the most unique Takoyaki creations that Kimchi and I have seen to date.

The Not-So-Good

Call me old fashioned, but a restaurant with such a light, cute, and comfortable atmosphere, is really missing a human connection. I felt like using the machine to order and picking up a tray of food from people hiding in the kitchen without any interaction undermined the “fun-ness” of the experience.
