Seoul Food Meat Co
While the name is a little deceiving, this barbecue joint is admittedly more "soul" than Seoul. Rather than Korean fare, the Charlotte eatery offers a menu built of classic Southern BBQ delicacies from beef ribs and mashed potatoes, to crispy pork belly and the chef's famous chicken wings. The staple comfort food dishes, however, are prepared with just a trace of Korean flavor, offering a little nuance to the food rosters found in typical Southern or Asian restaurants -- things like kimchi cole slaw, ramen mac & cheese, and of course, the notorious wings, double-fried in a Korean house-sweet-chili sauce. Additionally, the airy industrial space, lined with exposed pipes, white bricks, and icon-cast seating, features a fully-stocked bar, where Asian craft beers are served on tap along with a full menu of custom cocktails.
