Charles and Bok Kim's new restaurant Kimchi Time Korean Restaurant will soon be serving traditional Korean food out of a space at 2900 E. Broadway Blvd.
"It's going to be traditional Korean food, but a lot of people think Korean food is really spicy, so we're trying to show that only certain things are spicy," said Charles Kim, adding that he'll be serving about 30 different dishes when the restaurant opens at the end of the month.
There will be beer, wine and sake as well, but the most interesting thing on the drink menu will be makkoli, which was considered the Korean version of moonshine until its recent return to popularity. It's also the oldest alcoholic beverage to come out of Korea, and Charles Kim says nobody else in town currently serves it.
Hours will be 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Friday; 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday; and 4 to 9 p.m., Sunday.
