Six Things to Know About Sunrice

Known affectionately by its fans as a hard-to-find hole-in-the-wall, Sunrice dishes out a mix of Korean, pan-Asian, and American food during lunch on weekdays. Here are a few things to know to make the most of your visit.

  • It's cash only.
  • Beware of the limited hours. Sunrice is only open from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday–Thursday.
  • Every dish on the menu is under $10. That includes the popular lunch special featuring chapchae (a.k.a. sweet potato noodles)
  • The food is healthy. Kim, the owner, operates on these principles: no preservatives, no artificial colors, and no artificial flavor enhancers.
  • You can find Sunrice food at wholesalers. Some of the shop's tofu, sauces, and rice rolls populate shelves at stores that share the same healthy philosophies as Kim.
  • It's easy to miss. Sunrice is tucked away in a little nook between two buildings on 45th Street—be sure to look for the sign poking out from the plants.
