My fiance and I are heading out there to visit his parents in Silver Spring, and we'd like to introduce them to Korean food. We're planning on highlighting Korean food at our wedding next year (I'm Korean American), and we'd like to show them what it's like, and ultimately convince them that it's tasty (they have more conservative palates).
So, what we're looking for is your standard tasty, BBQ meats, particularly galbi, a good selection of banchan (preferably a good variety of non-spicy ones). English-speaking staff is not necessary, as I can speak enough to get by.
No Woo Lae Oaks please - we'd like something local. We're willing to drive a bit, but Annandale, which seems to have a sizeable Korean population, feels a bit far, so we're hoping that something closer to Silver Spring would fit the bill.
