Anyone skeptical about culinary fusion might very well change their mind upon visiting Hola Seoul, 715 N University Ave, Ann Arbor. This combination of Korean, Mexican and American cuisine perfectly sums up what makes Ann Arbor’s dynamic culinary scene so dynamic, diverse and delicious.

Hola Seoul is located in the Hamilton Square building, in between the Walgreens and Panera Bread. The interior is on the small side, but comfortable and full of personality. The floor to ceiling windows on North U provide a lot of light and a lovely view of both Nickels Arcade and the Diag.

The menu is small but manages to pack such a perfect cross section of its selected cuisines at reasonable prices. This includes kimchi tacos, Korea BBQ, dumplings and Korean fried chicken.

They also have a number of bento boxes, which provide a nice balance between protein, rice and vegetables. One looks like small empanadas, but once you bite into it, you’ll find that it is actually a spring roll in a different vessel.

There are also a number of items meant to share with friends, such as kimchi fries and red bean buns.
