The Most Overlooked Sauce in American BBQ
A regular stop in the late-night K-Towner’s Saturday night, Jongro is a not-so-secret second floor Korean barbecue restaurant. Due to the long lines and young, soju-thirsty crowds more for eating and imbibing pre- and post-night-out with friends than it is for formally sitting down with the family. Diners can cook their own cuts of raw, thinly sliced beef on a barbecue disc right at their table. Brisket, Korean marinated short ribs, and skirt steak are the centerpiece prepared foods here, but orders of spicy rice cakes, kimchi stew, and thick, fried seafood pancakes can also be seen at almost every other table. The high-capacity space makes it the ideal group destination, so roll in with your six favorite friends, and an appetite for soju.
