Bring a big group to this Korean-barbecue standout in Annandale’s Koreatown, because it’s best enjoyed with a packed table and bottles of soju. Panchan (complimentary side dishes) are more varied and fresher than most of the competition, ranging from classic kimchee to lemon-wasabi daikon. All-you-can-eat options for less than $30 a person are a tempting way to sample a wide selection of meats on the tabletop grills, including fatty brisket and miso pork belly. But it’s also worth venturing à la carte just for the tender galbi, sweet soy-marinated short ribs. Inexpensive to moderate.
Also great: Seafood pancake; meat dumplings; bulgogi; spicy chicken; three-layer pork belly.
