Chicago Kalbi Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Known for its namesake kalbi (tender, marinated short ribs, removed from the bone), this no-frills Korean barbecue joint features tabletop grills where you cook your own concoctions and top them with an assortment of condiments. The setting is nothing to write home about, just lots of wood paneling, though that suits the soju-swilling crew just fine. The true magic lies with the sizzling paper-thin strips of marinated chicken and bulgogi that cook in seconds, and the cucumber salad, radish kimchi and sesame oil-seasoned sprouts that top cooked meats. There are more adventurous options, too, like tongue and beef heart, for those so inclined.
