Korean BBQ

Hello Chowhounders,

Please help me. I need to find some great Korean BBQ here in San Francisco. I miss Los Angeles' amazing KBBQ, the fresh taste, and deliciousness. I've tried Muguboka on Balboa, and while it is really good, it is not great. I've tried another place on Geary whose name I can't recall with coals.

Please tell me that there are others that I am just missing?

  1. the best I have found is the one I made myself...


    But that aside - I have not actually been here, but there's never a non korean in the place so I am thinking it's got to be pretty good.

    1. The place on Geary with the coals was probably Brothers', and I haven't found any great korean in the city either. Do tell when it's found.

        There are at least half a dozen other Korean BBQ places on Geary: Jang Soo, Um Ma Son, Hanuri, Wooden Charcoal, Kings Charcoal, To Hyang ...

      2. Han Il Kwan is good. You can get charcoal if you ask for it when you reserve, otherwise it's gas.
