Capable of amazing acts of dexterity, true chopstick masters can employ the utensils to lift even the smallest grains of rice while simultaneously crocheting yarn napkins behind their backs. Showcase multitasking mastery with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Korean fusion fare at Flavor Factory.
Flavor Factory's skilled chefs use fresh ingredients to craft authentic Korean cuisine and employ new techniques to transform traditional dishes into modern fusion fare. The extensive menu presents a range of classics, such as the Hot Stone bowl, filled with egg, veggies, top sirloin, rice, and homemade red-pepper sauce ($13.90). Kimchi jeon updates the time-honored fermented cabbage dish with bacon, onions, and chili-soy dressing and is formed, fried, and served in pizza-like slices ($6.90). Meat-free options include the tofu steak, which blends the sautéed soy protein with garlic sauce, rice, and veggies ($11.99).
During midday meals, guests can dive mouth-first into savory hybrid handhelds, including the BBQ gochu tofu sandwich with mixed spring greens, red onions, tomatoes, cheddar cheese, and ranch dressing ($6.90), and dispatch delicacies to stomach dungeons with a smattering of smoothies such as the peachy paradise ($4.50) or the avocado ($5).
With occasional live music and karaoke in the evenings, colorful wall hangings, and modern accents, Flavor Factory provides a lively and inviting dining experience. The option to call ahead and have lunch orders ready upon arrival increases the odds of completing table-side tiddlywinks matches before returning to work, and an outdoor patio lends a cool breeze to spicy spreads.
