Hubby wants to try Korean BBQ for Father's Day. Would like to stay in Northern Jersey (Passaic, Bergen or Morris County). Won't rule out NYC. Any suggestions?

    Can suggest: So Moon Nan Jip, 238 Broad Avenue, Palisades Park

    Did you want to barbeque on the table?

    Have you had Korean food before ? I have experienced that even in the better restaurants, asking the waitstaff what to order usually doesn't result in a good experience (Oddly, since the basic beef short rib "Galbi" (or "Kalbi") are the easiest things to recommend)

      My personal fave is Woo Jung in Palisades Park. But it's a little more casual than some of the other places. For a birthday I would suggest Hanil Kwan in Fort Lee. So Moon Nan Jip is good too and everyone loves the place but IMO it trails the two above.

      I usually get a bunch of orders of kalbi, and a spicy soup to be shared by everyone. Yum!

          Keo Ku is good for where it is, but the joints in Fort Lee/Pal Park are significantly better imo.
