  1. The variety of colors in Korean food (according to “legend”) is an indicator of quality. In the centuries before scientific-based nutritional information, Korean diners used the diversity and intensity of the colors in their food to determine whether it was good for them and well-prepared (fresh as opposed to over-cooked, and lots of different vegetables).

    Even today, when my family sits down for a meal together, “Wow, it’s so beautiful” is always said about the food.

  2. I was under the impression that Color picked up its name from the neon-bright colors it used to have on the walls. Seriously, I’m talking highlighter shades here. The name corresponding with the food does make sense, though most (probably 85-90% of Korean food) is just RED because of the spicy pepper paste.

    That being said, the Korean food at Color is probably my favorite in Boston (unless its KBBQ- that’s when I head to Korean Garden).

    Also- they used to deliver. I’m not sure if they still do. If you call them, don’t be surprised if they answer in Korean. It shocked me the first time. But from the confusion in my voice, they quickly realized I wasn’t Korean and spoke to me in English.

    Color definitely was my go-to place for takeout/delivery when I was studying for finals. Nothing better to pick you up/keep you motivated while studying than a good 김치파전 and some 떡볶이.

  3. Nice article. I am so glad the new Color is starting to get recognition.

    The new owner there is such a lovely woman, and sometimes she makes special dishes that she cooks herself and offer them to customers. This is not a restaurant that you can find anywhere, whether in Koreatown in LA or NYC, because all the dishes taste like home-cooking food aka jip-bab. My friends and I are so happy we have a place like this near us. On their facebook page they announced they’ll be expanding the place and adding a bathroom… uh, a thousand times yes!
