What this restaurant lacks in ambiance - bright yellow and green walls pop under the bright lights - it makes up for in intense bursts of flavor and super friendly service. Try the spicy sautéed prawns ($12.95) with vegetables, cooked to perfection: the prawns tender and moist and the onions, mushrooms and peppers still crisp. The tender spicy pork ($13.95), cooked on a grill brought to our table, was perfectly seasoned in a sweet chili paste. Hold off on ordering a hot pot. As is the case at a number of Korean restaurants, sundubu jjigae (a red hot clam and pork stew swimming with kimchi, silken tofu and green onions) was added as a freebie to our meal. And Wooden Charcoal's rendition rivals the best of 'em.
