Walking into Gunbae is like stopping by a house party where you don’t know anyone, but feel instantly at-ease. This is a great place to come with a big group, but it’s just as good for a third date when you want to assess how much Korean BBQ your potential partner can consume in a single sitting. We usually opt for the Han-Sang combo—which serves up to four and comes with four different meats plus sundubu jjigae, fried dumplings, and banchan—then supplement that with an order or two of spicy yang-nyum kalbi. Skip the cocktails and drink your way through their extensive soju list, then head downstairs for karaoke.
