Chefs Rachel Yang and Seif Chirchi, proprietors of the restaurants Joule (in Wallingford) and Revel (in Fremont), have been spreading the kimchi revolution to Capitol Hill. Aptly named Trove, the restaurant requires a bit of work to explore. Under one roof, you’ll find a DIY Korean barbecue joint, a noodle bar, a watering hole, and a parfait place. Best to make a night of it: Start by sharing the rice cake noodles with lamb curry in the streetfront noodle zone, then order a beer at the bar and put your name in for a barbecue table in back. Cook up the giant tower of local meats (options include hanger steak, pork belly, and Wagyu tri-tip) on your tabletop grill, then head outside to order a parfait, such as apple pie with vanilla custard and curry caramel, from the ice cream “truck” cleverly built into the side of the building.
