Where to Eat in Austin Right Now

The gist: South Lamar’s sizzling Korean hot spot is K-BBQ on a mission. Their specialty is jjim, a method of slow-cooking or braising meats until extremely tender, so expect a fall-off-the-bone situation every time.
The food: Newcomers should try the signature Beef Short Rib Jjim, a pile of soft, meaty chunks cooked on cast iron with vegetables in a sweet soy sauce and sided with steamed white rice plus your choice of add-on (kimchi, mozzarella, egg, or glass noodles). It’s big enough for up to three to share, though two hungry stomachs will suit just fine. The Seafood Pancake Jeon is a lighter, crispier take on the traditional, if you want something smaller, and the Seafood Soon Dubu Soup, a hearty combo of silken tofu, clams, scallops, shrimp, and vegetables, feels like it was whipped up by grandma. Drinks-wise, expect a selection of cocktails, beer, wine, and tasty Korean spirits like soju and makgeolli.
The cost: Starters and shareables $8 - $24, barbecue platters $55 - $75, individual mains $18 - $24.
