If it's been a tough week, I'll make my way to Dae-ji on Dunsmuir for a delicious korean schnitzel. For under $10 you can have two juicy breaded pork cutlets, with a glico-like gravy, oddly delicious kimchi macaroni salad, corn niblets, rice and a salad. Popular among the ESL students, this place is packed on the weekday lunch hour so get here a little bit early if you want a seat.
If you are feeling daring try the pizza cutlet, it's oddly comforting. I also like the kimchi fried rice.
