From the moment you pull up and hear Usher blasting from the speakers, it’s clear you’ve arrived at Ktown’s hottest party. Welcome to MUN, an upscale Korean steakhouse where you’ll dine on boneless short ribs, beef tartare bibimbap, and kimchi pancakes glued together with molten cheese. Almost everything is painted black, from the walls to the benches to the flashy marble tables outfitted with grills containing tiny, barely perceptible air vents that whisk any  smoke away from your face and hair. Everyone on the waitstaff is tatted. And drinks—like Japanese whiskey, cognac, mezcal, soju, beer, and strawberry lychee martinis—are poured at warp-speed. Equal parts do-it-yourself barbecue, drinking den, and informal rave, the energy at MUN is fork-in-the-socket electric. Meals should balance premium meats (the $200 variety combo serves four people and includes flat-iron steak, honeycomb-cut pork belly, pork jowl, and short ribs) with fun, whimsical a la carte items.
