About Kogiya



Late-night revelers routinely descend on the metal, grill-outfitted tables here for ample panchan, beer, and medleys of grilled meat. Go beyond barbecue with our favorite local rendition of rice cakes in gooey, garlic-laced chili sauce—a street-food staple in Korea. And if you can’t find chopsticks or a spoon, look under the tabletop, where cleverly placed drawers neatly stow utensils and napkins.
