Korean in Fresno

Looking specifically for ribs. Anyone know of a restaurant in the NW area? The ones I knew about are gone.

  1. Hi Gail,

    The are only two Korean places I know of in Fresno with one being in the NW area, they are:

    Maroo (SW corner of Bullard/West; they do Japanese and Korean cuisine)
    Samo's Kitchen (SW corner of Shaw/Fresno; strictly Korean, way more authentic IMO)

    2075 W Bullard Ave, Fresno, CA 93711

      Thanks gmk, I know right where Samo's is...Mission Village. Have you tried their ribs?

        Hi Gail,

        Sorry for the delay in responding, too many papers to write at the end of the semester. I actually haven't had a chance yet to try the BBQ or the ribs at Samo's. I usually always order the bibimbap or jigaes; they do have a good selection of banchan from my memory.

    2. Wondering if there are any recent reports on Samos Kitchen (and/or any other Korean in the area). I had reco'd them to a colleague at work who reported back that they didn't really care for their lunch that much. I'm really hoping that this is a case of his never having tried Korean food before since I have no idea of how adventurous and varied their dining experiences are.
