Red Stand, a new contemporary Korean restaurant on Keeaumoku Street, opened this past summer offering a unique menu of rice burgers, table-top tteokbokki, snack boxes, hot and cold noodles, desserts and more.

Among the signature menu items is Tteokbokki (Spicy Rice Cake) Table Top ($18.95 regular, $27.95 large), rice burgers (prices vary) and Samgak Kimbap ($2.25 each) — a Korean-style musubi.

For dessert, there’s the classic Korean favorite Pat Bingsoo ($8.25), which is shaved ice with red bean, rice cake, pineapple and walnut, and so much more.

Owner/chef Theresa Choi notes that all her sauces are homemade using natural ingredients and no MSG.

Validated parking is available in the Sam Sung Plaza, which is located across from Walmart.


This month, the new eatery features its unique and exclusive Cup Bap in seven different flavors — Bulgogi, Kalbi, Kimchi, Spicy Pork, Marinated Chicken, Vegetable or Spicy Stir-Fried Squid. Customers also can choose a sauce — honey mustard, teriyaki or gochujang (Korean-style hot paste). The Bulgogi Cup Bap ($5.75 small, $9.95 large) has bulgogi (seasoned beef) and vegetables (cabbage, green onion, carrots and onion), topped with sesame seeds and served over rice. Available all day, Cup Bap is tasty and convenient.
