Korean in Shanghai

BBQ would be good but so would non-BBQ... anyone have any ideas? (nothing too expensive)

  1. korean bbq is shanghai is not good at all...the beef is horrible.

    1. FWIW, the City Weekend website lists about 25 Korean restaurants:

      I don't think it would occur to me to look for anything but Chinese food in China, but with the explosion of interest in things Korean in Shanghai (thanks to the Korean TV soaps that are all the rage these days) there might be something good out there (and it wouldn't be that difficult for a serious venture to import suitable beef).

      1. Ya, I would just as soon steer clear of the City Weekend, especially their recommendations. A friend talked about Ben Jia in Gubei but I have no idea where it is. Oh well.... Lost Heaven it may well have to be.

        1. re: mbe

          Well, I personally would be more wary of anything in Gubei than whatever City Weekend recommends.

 has reviews for 267 Korean restaurants, if you want more choices.

        2. Ahhhhh... not more choice... reccomendations.. lol. ..thanks Gary, maybe I can find Ben Jia there :).

          1. If you're ever in Beijing, there's a decent Korean BBQ a little south of the University of International Business & Economics.
