This is the first—and only—US location of Daedo Sikdang, a legendary Seoul steakhouse with an outpost in Koreatown. You’ll find the restaurant in a huge, sleek building on 6th  Street (trust us, there will not be parking) filled with rows of identical light wood tables and glistening metal grills. The menu is short, with a focus on premium cuts like marinated angus beef, dry-aged strips, and the ribeye roll, a super tender cut of alternating layers of lean meat and marbled fat. Things can get carnivorous fast, so we recommend ordering a few sides to go with your meal. Go for the crispy orange kkakdooki fried rice and yolmu cold noodle soup, which comes with thin rice noodles and blocks of ice right in the bowl.
