I always like to see a restaurant giving back to the community, and Hodori Restaurant, the popular 24 hour Korean spot on Vermont just south of Olympic, has been raising money to buy computers for the local public schools. They did a number of events for the schools and have a donation box up on the counter where customers can donate to the cause.
The cuisine at Hodori is pretty standard Korean comfort food: donkatsu, bi bim bap, assorted barbecue dishes, etc. Most of the food is on the just okay level, but I'm a sucker for the chicken soup with hand cut noodles. It's got a great, rich chicken flavor and the noodles are nicely chewy. Check it out and help out some local kids.
