BBQ

Located outside the last stop on the 7 line, Mapo Galmaegi is the ideal restaurant for inexperienced outer-borough adventurers. Travelers reward themselves here with galmaegi (pig rib meat) -- the restaurant’s signature, namesake dish. And if you’re looking for the classics, most other beef and pork cuts like marinated short rib (galbi) and thin slices of brisket are available, as well. Oh, and because the practical folks behind Mapo know you’ll be indulging amongst meat fumes for a while, they’ve cleverly furnished all tables with chairs that double as storage. This way, your happy dining memories can live on in your social media, and not on your clothes.
