If you want a Korean BBQ spot with high-quality meat and a party atmosphere, but shorter wait times than Park’s or Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong, Soowon Galbi is the place to go. On a Friday night, you’ll see business dinners that involve multiple bottles of soju (per person), birthday celebrations, and going-away parties that probably result in some missed flights. It’s also more affordable than other places with meat this good - the Combo B is $115 and comes with enough beef and pork to feed a group of four.
