    I've been here a couple times and find it to be a homey, pleasant place with decent Korean food and prices.

    I've tried their kimchi fried rice and tofu soup, and while they weren't "stand out" items, my Korean food cravings were satisfied and I left feeling full.

    Other Considerations:
    + decent amount of seating
    + close to BART
    + little to no wait for seating

    SUMMARY: mmmm, nope.

    BACKGROUND
    Met the wife to go to an art show and ended up at the closest Korean place near Civic BART. numerous restaurants had the health warning rating from Yelp and this was one of the safer ones.

    FOOD
    I ordered nakji bokum, which is a spicy octopus pan fried dish mixed with mainly onions. In two words: Staedler eraser. Yes you know the good German erasers that only art students used in school. The octopi was so chewy my mini chin gobbler is goooone. Sauce was not authentic at all.

    Banchan was not palatable at all too.

    ATMOSPHERE
    Inside, pleasant. Outside is rough and tough. Across the street I watched two drug deals go down. #tenderloinlife

    SERVICE
    The only reason this review is getting 3 and not 1 star is the waitresses were really kind and comp'd my meal 10 pct off.

    Homey Korean food in the Tenderloin, Jin Mi is reliable, quick, and easy. It's also walking distance to Twitter/Market and the Orpheum Theatre.

    I usually get bibambap, but this last time I went to Jin Mi I found that I preferred the kimchi fried rice. I loved the egg on top and the kimchi flavor seemed to permeate through the rice, offering a rich, deep, and complex flavor.

    There's a single-stall bathroom in the back through the kitchen. It could be cleaner.

    What the what!? A legit Korean place five minutes away from City Hall!? How can I say no? We were a bit skeptical at first thanks to the dimness outside and the lack of crowd, but oh well.

    The classic banchans - potatoes, broccoli, fishcakes, beansprouts and kimchi. Their kimchi was more on the acidic side than your average restaurant kimchi. The juice that came with it was thick and flavorful. For $2, you get to walk out with a little container of their house kimchi.

    Kimchi Fried Rice: Just one word - PUNGENT! That acidic scent of the kimchi juice had us hooked like a certain toucan on a branded cereal. There was nothing fancy about this Korean classic, just your fried rice and a pan fried egg on top. But the taste will have you come back for more.

    Fried chicken: tangy and zesty. Nicely fried and fall of the bone tender. Love how they tossed in pineapple slices with the chicken in a PINEAPPLE CONTAINER! Perfectly seasoned and finger licking good!

    Would be back for sure (and we'll be bringing our own container for kimchi next time).
