Best Korean and best Grinders in Boston Area
Looking for the most authentic Korean and best sub shop in boston area.
Can anyone help?
Some of the best Korean I've had has been in the food court at H-mart, been to a few other restaurants, but always seem to pay way too much for sub par fare. Are you talking BBQ or other meals?
For Korean food, I'd recommend:
Kaju - diff types of sundubu jjigae (soft tofu soup)
Hanmaru - gamjatang (pork+potato stew)
Manna House - spicy pork bulgogi
Buk Kyung - jjajangmyun or jjampong (Korean-Chinese noodle dishes), tangsooyook (Korean-Chinese fried pork)
Chung Ki Wa - jeongol (bouillabaisse-like large stew with seafood or meats), seolleongtang / gomtang (beef soup from ox bones + brisket)
Kaya - hwedupbap (rice mixed with raw fish and veggies; cold dish)
Kaya also does an ok seafood jeongol, with lobster.
I went to Woojeon at H Mart recently and enjoyed their ttaro gookbap (radish soup with rice) and ttukbaegi bulgogi (beef in soup with glass noodles).
For Korean bbq, I like Chung Ki Wa. You might also try Kaya and ask to use one of the rooms if you have a group of people and want a bit cozier feel. Pricey though.
Not sure if I can say its the best, but I enjoy the spuckies at Bob's Italian Foods in Medford.
I don't know the name of it, but the Korean stall opposite the Chinese BBQ stall in the Allston Super 88 does truly fantastic ok-dol bibimbap.
My top sub shops, measured by their Italian subs, and reflecting my Somerville-centrism:
Bob's in Medford
Sessa's in Davis (also has excellent eggplant parm)
P&K Deli on Beacon in Somerville
Victor's in Ball (also has excellent eggplant parm)
Angelina's in Teele
Vinny's in East Somerville
