The party never stops at these late-night Korean barbecue houses, even in the bathrooms, where K-pop jangles. The decor is no-frills, but the theatrics of tabletop grilling are in full effect. Watch servers heap pounds of marinated meats and seafood—pork belly, spicy beef and octopus—on sizzling grills, then hew the Flintstonian hunks with scissors. It’s worth splurging on LA-style galbi—marbled beef short ribs—and of course, a few rounds of Hite beer and soju. Also good: Pan-fried mandu (dumplings); seafood pancake; naengmyeon (cold noodle soup).
