Know of any places? I want to take a friend out to lunch this week, but don't know of any places near our work.

    According to the MetroTimes restaurant database, what you seek does not exist. I'm going to suggest to my Korean friend that she open one.

    Hana on E. Michigan Ave. in Ypsilanti, near Value Village: 16 miles from the corner of Michigan and Telegraph. Excellent Korean food.

      Didn’t check on the mileage, but you should try the New Seoul Garden a telegraph and eleven mile. Excellent Korean food. The lunchbox specials are very good and reasonable, if you have more time or for dinner get the full Korean BBQ, it’s a great experience!

        I do like this place. This is where the Korean classical music stars stop off when they come to town. It's a little hard to find. Head up to Telegraph and 12 Mile, then drop down to 11 Mile where the Glassman auto dealerships are. If you take the Southfield to 696 and drive like a maniac, you might make it on your lunch hour.

        A bit farther than 10 miles, but Korea House in Farmington off of Grand River in a strip mall is good and very authentic

          If New Seoul Garden in Southfield is too far from Dearborn you may want to try New Peking in Garden City on Ford Rd. The Chinese family who own the restaurant lived in Korea and serve a number of Korean or Korean-influenced Chinese dishes, such as ja jang myun and jam bang.

            Yep, Southfield's too far. I haven't been to New Peking in years, but it might work. Why no Korean restaurants around this area, I wonder???

              Hmm...I don't know. I took a Chinese friend to New Peking and was surprised when he placed his order in English. I asked why, and he said it was because the staff was addressing each other in Korean.
