    I am unaware of any Korean food in Bridgewater. The closest really good Korean food that I can think of is KimchiHana in the Middlesex Mall right off of 287. They are one of the few Korean places that use actual charcoal grills rather than gas grills. I highly recommend it.

      The closest I can think of is Kimchi Hana in S. Plainfield.

        My boyfriend and I are always on the lookout for new Korean restaurants. There is one in Hillsborough on Amwell Rd, I believe, in a strip mall not too far from Route 206. Its average but worth at least one try. I would strongly recommend Kimchi Hana, as the other posters have, as the best Korean restaurant any where near Somerset County. There are a couple in Edison (not the one's on Route 1) that are also pretty good, but Kimchi Hana is closer. In Somerset, you can get basics like bulgogi at a few Japanese places. Domo 7 in Whitehouse Station (hunterdon) is opening in Bedminster, I think. And Kiku in Bedminster offers it too. For something completely different, there is a sandwich place in Bedminster called the Carriage House Cafe that has bulgogi subs and hamburgers. my guess is its a matter of time before another Korean restaurant opens in Somerset county but the chances of it being good are slim.

          Would love to know the name of the place in Hillsborough, or maybe more specific directions.

            OK, I found it, its actually another Japanese restaurant with korean on its menu--tho i can't get the menu to open. We ate there about 5 years ago and had Korean food. The owner, or one of them, was Korean and he told me they were going to put more Korean food on the menu. I remember it being okay but we havent been back because South Plainfield is just as far for us and we think Kimchi Hana is the best in the general area.. Matsuba at 450 Amwell Rd in Hillsoborough. http://www.matsuba.com/
