Korean in STL

I'm looking for a good Korean place in STL. I've been to Everest and Seoul Taco several times and would like to find something else. Any suggestions?

  1. Try Asian Kitchen, at 8423 Olive Blvd, the former Shu Feng location.

      We like Seoul Garden in St. Ann on St. Charles Rock Road. He'll make it spicy for you!!!

        I googled around for Seoul Garden's menu, but all I could really find were refs for the $20 pp AYCE hot pot, nuthin' on their website or elsewhere. any clues?

        HEY restaurant owners: if you're going to bother having a website, post your menu and if it's not going to be regularly updated just say it's a sample as of the posting date and prices are subject to change. please.

          Hill, yeah you right about their website...not good. But urbanspoon and yelp have some pretty good reviews and comments about the food at Seoul Garden. But yes, I agree with you about their website, not too enticing.

            I am interested in this place and the next time I visit my aunt I'll drop by and grab a t/o menu to post, but life could be so much easier...

              hey only 6 weeks after the first post, but here's a scan of the t/o menu for Seoul Garden, apologies for the poor quality. when I have a scanner, I have lousy internet and when I have a strong connection, I don't have a scanner.

              I didn't eat there, but it smelled really really good..

              <edit> aww crap, double checked how this looks and it's mud. I have the basic (not dumbed down) scan on the hard drive and the next time I'm around WiFi I'll try to post again.

              other than the AYCE $20/pp grill, the usual suspects are in the $12-$20 range (although the hot pots can go as high as $40) lunch specials for $9

        It's actually not the former Shu Feng, as Shu Feng is still there. I went to Asian Kitchen last week. Still very good.

      3. Sorry to be so vague, but there was a spot on Olive St. Road in a strip mall ... lost the name ... but the same little corner as Gobblestop Smokehouse at Olive and Fee Fee. It's a funny strip that has two parts, one that faces east and another that faces south. I think it's still there - worth some exploration, though, as the food was good and the service pleasant if not affable.

          Hangook Kwan Restaurant and Joo Joo is west of that in the same shopping center as Happy China. There aren't that many in St. Louis and any I have been to I liked what I had.

        2. Thanks everyone! I look forward to trying them out!

          1. Hi everyone;
            I went to Asian Kitchen last night and really enjoyed it, although my dining companion (more of a connoisseur than I) thought it was just alright. The festival of side dishes is pretty impressive!
