At Itaewon Pocha—a neon-lit, second-story spot in K-Town—you’ll drink a bunch of cocktails that taste like they’re equal parts sugar and soju. That might sound reckless, but this colorful Korean gastropub serves exactly the kind of food you need to soak up a ton of booze. Get some kimchi dumplings smothered in a cream sauce as well as an order of cheesy rice cakes mixed with a ton of seafood—and don’t skip the bulgogi fries. This is a late-night place, so come after 10pm for the full experience. Bring a few friends after a round of karaoke, and try not to fall off your little plastic stool.
