Revel in one of Fremont's hottest culinary finds — Photo courtesy of Revel
Located in the Fremont neighborhood, this hot spot is owned by husband and wife chef duo Rachel Yang and Seif Chirchi, who met while cooking at New York’s Alain Ducasse at the Essex House. According to their website, even though "both chefs have a distinctly different point of view, their tastes blend together to create modern, creative and seamless cuisine in their restaurants." The couple also owns nearby Joule.
The end result of their merged, creative culinary talents? Urban-style Korean comfort food that ranges from dumplings and pancakes with pork belly, kimchi and bean sprouts to scrumptious dishes of noodles (Think Dungeness crab, seaweed noodle, creme fraiche and spicy red curry.) and rice (Try the short rib, sambal daikon and mustard greens.). Diners delight in the charming ambiance, too; walls are covered with funky art in this re-imagined former industrial building, transformed thanks to the innovative use of glass, metal, wood and other unexpected materials.

Those who score seats at the chef's-table-meets-bar get an up-close view of the masters at work. Loyal patrons arrive early to enjoy a pre-meal drink on the back deck of adjoining Quoin, where creative cocktails and a cozy fire pit steal the show. Weekend brunch is also a popular event at this bustling venue.
Regardless of when diners arrive, though, there is no doubt they come to fully relish the experience.
