Baekchae Kimchi Jjigae (resto's name)

Not to be confused with Baekje, the Korean dynasty. In the word "Baekchae," the baek is Chinese for "white" (白), and the chae is Chinese for "vegetable" (菜), in this case specifically signifying "cabbage," an essential component of kimchi.

(With thanks to Charles for his explanation of the etymology.)
