Best Korean

Seoul Hot Pot

When Seoul Hot Pot first opened, owner Jin Huh offered pizzas and meatball subs, thinking that Americans would never take to the restaurants' exotic offerings of kimchi (spicy pickled cabbage) and bulgogi (Korean barbecued beef). But Seoul Hot Pot, a no-frills restaurant on the edge of Chinatown, quickly became a hot spot for the best Korean barbecue in the city. The menu features myriad homemade Korean specialties, including yu ke jang (spicy beef pepper soup) and dol sot bibimbap (a bowl of rice, exotic veggies, and sauce topped with a fried egg). Best of all, you can cook your bulgogi yourself -- the traditional way to prepare Korean barbecue -- at a handful of special tables.
