Korean Express is a small fast-food-style restaurant on the UB-North Campus. I have been working as a cashier at Korean Express (also known as KE) in the Commons for over three semesters and so many people come in and ask me for recommendations, and many people keep coming back for more once they try the dishes I recommend. Therefore I would like to share with you the 5 best Korean dishes you should try at Korean Express.

Also, despite the fact that it’s all Korean food, customers are very global and no matter where you are from, there is a food that fits your taste.
