Korean Garden-Allston-Anyone Been?
I walked by Korean Garden tonight (Saturday) and it was packed. It looked pretty good from looking in the window. Has anyone been?
a few of us went for lunch back in the fall. they had just opened and several dishes on the menu weren't available yet. highlights included a diverse selection of fresh panchan (which was promptly refilled throughout the meal) and a stellar version of spicy pork bulgogi
Yes, it's generally good. The kalbi (marinated shortribs) is a surprising deal, as it comes with a duenjanjigae (bean paste stew). I'd still go to Buk Kyung for tangsooyuk (the Chinese-Korean version of sweet and sour pork), noodles, and dumplings, but for most other items, I like Korea Garden a lot. Unfortunately, the ventilation isn't that great, so cooking meat at your table can leave you rather odoriferous for some time.
