If you see a long line in the Seattle area, it’s probably filled with tourists (cough cough, original Starbucks location). But Daeho is one big exception—for good reason. This wildly popular San Francisco Korean chain opened a Bellevue outpost and has even locals waiting two hours for their kalbijjim at prime dinner hours. The giant $79 skillet (which could feed five people) is overflowing with tender short rib meat that falls apart like it just watched A Walk To Remember, chunky carrots, and softened potatoes in a rich gochugaru sauce. It’s hearty and comforting, and even better when ordered with rice cakes and a mountain of melty cheese on top that gets blowtorched tableside. Both toppings add a salty creaminess to the sweet sauce and gets you quality time with your blowtorch-wielding server. It’s best to arrive early—before they open for dinner at 4:30—to avoid those crowds.
