Best place to get it: POT
The cornerstone of every Korean meal is the thick, stew-like soup known as "jjigae." Sundubu is one of them, but there are many others, some of which you've likely been given for free at Korean BBQ restaurants. The two most common are kimchi jjigae, which is made with (you guessed it) kimchi; and doenjang jjigae, made with fermented soy bean paste (it tastes way better than it sounds). But the craziest one by far is budae jjigae, a mishmash of hot dogs, spam, instant ramen, and anything else you can imagine (we're looking at you, slices of American cheese!). It was invented in the '50s from leftover food that was sent to feed American soldiers during the Korean War, hence it's nickname, "Army base stew." For a classic budae jjigae, Chunju Han-il Kwan is the spot. But to really get jiggae with it (apologies, it had to be done), we recommend the "Boot Knocker" at Roy Choi's POT.
