A quirky new restaurant heads to Spring Mountain Road, taking its name from the Korean expression for flared or bell-bottom pants. Napal Baji touts a retro-themed setting that promises to send diners “back to the ’80s” with a menu of inexpensive street food, barbecue, and bar food designed to be shared by friends and families.

Headed to a new building pad at the Golden Spring Plaza, a short distance from Duneville Street, the large restaurant joins a diverse roster of existing tenants including Pier 88 Boiling Seafood & Bar, Feng Cha tea house, and T-Swirl Crepe. Despite the informal image, the project was built with an estimated construction budget of $650,000, a pricey investment for the neighborhood.

Napal Baji is inspired by small pubs and the mood of a vintage Korean convenience store. Its main menu will feature Korean pocha, its street stall-inspired bites, ready to pair with soju or beer. Also planned, soups, fried dishes, and stir-fried plates, plus bar food creations of dried seafood, skewered snacks, ramen, and ice cream. Previewed menu photos also hint at plenty of hot and spicy options.
