When the weather starts getting warmer, I develop an insatiable craving for bibim naeng myun, a tangy cold noodle dish imbued with the heat of chiles.
So a few weeks ago, on one of the first really warm days of the year, I made my annual journey out to Silla, a longtime, strip-mall Korean barbecue restaurant in Aurora that offers one of the town's best versions of that dish.

But I didn't stop with the bibim naeng myun. For this week's review, I sampled much of Silla's menu, eating my way through the appetizers, barbecue and other entrees, supplementing my order with the complimentary banchan.
And how was the rest of the menu? Find out tomorrow when the review is posted here.
