Austin doesn’t have a ton of Korean pubs, but we do have Pocha Is Back, a late-night spot in Crestview for fried chicken, soju, and volcano kimchi fried rice with cheese. Show up early in the night if you’re just coming in for a chill dinner—the later the night gets, the rowdier and busier it gets. The prices are a little on the high end here, and none of the food will blow you away, but the dining room is pretty small, so consider it just the price of semi-exclusive admission. And if you want to keep the party going after Pocha Is Back closes, head next door to Austin Karaoke, usually open an hour or two later.
