BBQ

It’s Jean-Georges’ favorite KBBQ spot in K-Town, but that’s not why you should pay a visit to this 24/7 spot. First, there’s the pork belly, cut into greasy, thicker-than-average strips. Then there’s the restaurant’s best-selling kimchi pork backbone stew -- a steaming pot of spicy red soup bubbling with generous helpings of aged kimchi and fall-off-the-bone pork backbone. A single $17 order will easily fill three people. For the ultimate flavor rapture, grill your aged kimchi with the pork belly, and eat cuts of both in a single bite.
