Korean B.B.Q. House Restaurant Review

: Korean B.B.Q. House (also called Go Hyang Jib) was long ago discovered by adventuring foodists who abandoned it---despite the menu remaining largely the same---when the original owners moved on. But there are signs the foodies should return. The pancake with oysters and spring onion retains its rustic appeal, and the multi-modal pan chan (or banchan) continue to delight. Bi bim bap, the kitchen-sink Korean mix of vegetables, bulgogi and a fried egg atop rice, is mix-it-yourself fun (we recommend the sizzling stone pot version), and the house’s incendiary hot paste can be blended in at will. More heat might be expected of a squid stir-fry, which lacks the fire of previous preparations. Ditto the pork bulgogi. Yet we have always been fans of the spicy-sour kimchi soup. The décor could now use a lift to match the current regime.
