Best Korean in the 'burbs? (i/s/o some really good bibimbap)

I've had a hankering for some really good Korean food, specifically bi bim bap! I'm in the Lansdale area... any suggestions?

  1. Assi Plaza food court...?

    1. There is a korean bbq place in the same shopping center as Assi. It is off to the side.

      1. I'm pretty sure that the Korean place (to the right of Assi near Lai Lai Bros.) is closed. There are two Korean restaurants in Blue Bell; Korea Garden in a small shopping center on 202 north of 73, and Gaya on 73 east of 202. The bibimbap at Korea Garden is okay. I've never had it at Gaya.

          I forgot to mention that Bonjung in Collegeville also serves a decent bibimbap.

        2. August Moon in Norristown.

          There's also a tiny Korean place at the end of the strip mall that has the Sae Han Oriental Market at 202 and Township Line Road in Blue Bell.

            I've nearly forgotten about August Moon... mmmm King of Prussia To Norristown for takeout for lunch... I may have to make the run as a good Chowhounder would.
            Thank you all for the other responses. They're now on my list of places to try...

              Chef is right. That place is called To Dam Gol. There was a discussion of it in a previous thread.

                I love To Dam Gol for hot pots, soups and jap chae, but I do not like their Bi Bim Bop. It is bland, even after adding a lot of sauce.

            3. Myung Ga in Cherry Hill is worth the trip.
