Gogi's Korean BBQ Restaurant Review

: This glorified food stand may offer a basic menu and a lack of ambience, but the concept is a winner among hungry office workers and late-night revelers. Expect Korean short ribs, chicken and tofu stuffed into tacos, burritos or rice bowls. Our favorite is the Korean short rib taco --- spicy, sweet and loaded with flavor, the meat is nicely offset by tangy, crunchy cabbage slaw. A trio of tacos with a soda is a filling meal, all for less than $10. Seating is available on the sidewalk or bamboo-flanked patio shared by the neighboring restaurant and nightclub; if it’s too crowded or the weather is uncooperative, grab a meal to go. Indulge in the seasonal shaved ice in the warmer months.
