Cafe Agit is a dimly lit Korean bar and grill in Mesa with a menu of late-night “Korean fusion,” which has its roots in classic Korean anju, otherwise known as foods designed to be paired with alcohol. The menu offers standard American bar snacks like French fries, chicken wings, and calamari, along with Korean analogues like spicy, deep-fried chicken wings. The biggest draws are the Korean fried chicken menu, including a very good version of padak: boneless chicken breast bites glazed in a lovely soy-ginger marinade. Also good is bulgogi, the classic marinated beef barbecue, which is succulent and slightly charred. You’ll also find hard-to-find Korean street snacks like silkworm pupae, served in an intensely earthy red pepper and corn broth, which you can wash down with carafes of flavored soju, a popular Korean rice spirit.
