The search for Korean BBQ continues...

equinoise | Nov 15, 2006 07:42 PM

I recently moved to Seattle from the NYC area. There is a significant Korean community in northern New Jersey, and through leads and contacts, I was able to locate an outstanding Korean BBQ place, So Moon Nan Jip. There is nothing quite so satisfying as a well-made Korean BBQ meal, with all the panchan.

I am looking for a place like this here. I tried Kokiri in Federal Way, but found it a bit lacking. One feature that I consider essential is charcoal or wood fuel for cooking instead of gas-Kokiri uses gas. Also, they didn't offer up lettuce wraps until we asked; maybe we got gringoed.

I have some details on Hae-Nam, Ho Soon Yi, Old Korean Village, Shilla, Mirak, and Ka Won. Can anyone comment on the relative qualities of these places, and specifically, whether they use charcoal?

I have some names I pulled off the Seattle Korean Professionals site that I could not locate any other information on, at least not in english. See http://www.seattlekaps.org//businessd...

Many of these names are not in English, and I'm too tech-illiterate to translate the page unless I'm prompted to do so. Has anyone been to any of these:
