With dry-aged ribeyes and multiple cuts of Wagyu grilled in the middle of your table, Yoon Haeundae Galbi is primarily a Korean BBQ restauant. And while you’d be quite happy walking out of the narrow, sleek space having ordered nothing but meat, you’d be missing out on the real reason you should prioritize this 50-plus year-old spot over the vast majority of places a couple blocks south in K-Town - the seafood tteokbokki. The massive entree includes rice cakes tender enough to slice with chopsticks, but with enough snap to add texture, and graininess to hold in the spicy, acidic sauce. That sauce is so thick (and distractingly excellent) that you’ll barely notice the huge portion of seafood until the plate is half-empty. At that point, though, you’ll discover crab, head-on shrimp, baby octopus, and two types of clams, all which have been bathing in the gochujang-based sauce the entire time.

Jongro BBQ review image

Jongro is one of our favorite Korean barbecue spots in the city, although it gets pretty busy. Put your name in, then go sing some karaoke.
