A new Korean and Japanese spot, offering tapas and more, has opened in Noe Valley. 

Seokyo—located in the former home of sushi bar Noe—specializes in Korean-style comfort food with hints of Japanese sensibilities. 

On the menu, expect to see shareable plates like okra tempura, kimchi gyoza (pot stickers), grilled corn with cheese, and kimchi tofu. For seafood options, there are items such as tuna tataki, hamachi carpaccio, grilled squid with garlic, and oysters on the half shell. 

Switching over to entrées, look for kimchi fried rice, beef bulgogi, kalbi short ribs, and seafood pancakes. 

Rounding things out are a selection of libations like soju, mango or lychee cocktails, and Korean beer on draught. 

The fresh arrival has already attracted fans thus far, with a five-star rating out of six reviews on Yelp.

Cathleen C., among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on February 10th, praised the "Korean and Japanese fusion delicacies served at this restaurant, only open for dinners. Love the quiet ambiance and cleanliness. Sashimi tastes excellent and are fresh. I definitely would come back."

“This is a really nice restaurant," said Yelper Shujun L. "Super good service. Must orders: assorted sashimi, wings and kimchi pork. They also a have secret menu item, crispy cheese shrimp. Definitely will come back.”

And Sophie L. said: "Bulgogi is my favorite! It's a nice restaurant and they have two sections with totally different feelings! The front section is good for family! The back section is a bar [to] chill with friends."

Seokyo (1740 Church St. between Day St. & 29th St.) is open Friday and Saturday from 5pm–11pm, and Sunday–Thursday from 5pm–10pm.
