Miss Korea has been open since 2002, and does more traditional Korean barbecue than what you’ll find at Kang Ho Dong Baekjoeng, Jongro, or Dons Bogam Black. While the food isn’t quite as good as those spots, it’s a little bit cheaper and easier to get into, so we like to recommend this place for group dinners when you’re looking for something quieter and don’t want to spend a crazy amount. It’s open 24 hours, so stop by whenever.

ChinGoo is a casual Korean restaurant in Williamsburg, and it’s great for a weeknight when you don’t feel like spending a ton on dinner.
It seems like lately, all of the Korean food we’ve been eating has been of the “trendy re-interpretation” variety. While we’re fine with that, occasionally we get a craving for a more traditional meal, and for that, we head to Madangsui.
