Korean BBQ

I have always been partial to San Soo Gab San, but I curious if anyone has a different opinion on "The Best Korean BBQ" in the city.

    Hai Woon Dae
    6240 N. California
    Chicago, IL.

    gets some high praise ofer on the LTH board.

    1. Cho Sun Ok (a little south of K-town on Lincoln) is a cool authentic experience. There is usually a line out the door and Korean families like to frequent it. It offers a little different experience that the standard - the thing to get is chadul gui - its what all the Koreans will be eating. They do a nice fried rice with your leftover panchan at the end of the meal. It's nice for something a little different, but still super-authentic.

      I like Solga, too, for Kalbi or soups/stews. The panchan are pretty good there, too.
