Hi there - we are heading to Orlando on Saturday for Halloween Horror nights and would love to get a recommendation for a great Korean restaurant to hit first. Searched the board but only found one. Would appreciate your help, thanks!

      Shin Jung is the most authentic Korean in FL I've had since I got back from Seoul. On 50 near Mills I believe.

        Right around the corner from Universal (like within 5 minutes) is one of the area's best - Beewon Korean. Go there for sure, it's great and convenient

        By the way, Universal is featuring Korean tacos in the park for Halloween Horror Nights thiis year - both beef and pork. They're not at the level of say a great food truck - but defintely better than your regular theme park fare.

          Thank you all for your recommendations. Based on Dr. Todd's and ratings on Urbanspoon/Yelp, we ended up at Shin Jung. We had a great time grilling out own kal bi (gal bi) short ribs and chicken and enjoying the ban chan...the daikon kim chee was our favorite. I look forward to having the chance to try Beewon next time. I will say that the portions were so generous (and so tasty) that we couldnt' even attempt a Korean taco at Halloween Horror nights 7 hours later...still too full. But they smelled delicous. Thanks again for your great suggestions!

            Korea House Restaurant in Longwood. It is a little far from universal, but worth the drive.
