Not just parrilla

A few nights ago we went downtown with friends and had food that was decidedly different for Montevideo: Korean. The restaurant was just off Plaza Independencia and has a small main dining room in front and smaller private dining rooms in back. The menu was all Korean; I don't think there's a Spanish menu, but they did have one with English descriptions alongside the Korean names, so we ordered using a mix of Spanish, English, and Korean.

The food was good. The kim-chee was probably the spiciest food I'd eaten since coming to Uruguay. My favorite dish was the fried dumplings. Pictured here is the carne with vegetables in spicy sauce.

What was the name of the restaurant? I was familiar with one that used to be by the Victoria Radisson but it closed down months ago, or so I thought.
Where is this one?
This is probably the same place. It's behind the Radisson. I didn't catch the name-- the handmade paper sign on the door used Korean characters.
I went again for lunch today (fried dumplings). The address is Ciudadela 1389.
