Getting together with friends for lunch Saturday, one of whom particularly loves Korean and can't get even bad Korean near home.
I know it's been discussed before and I did search and read and note what I found, but most of it's older stuff and conflicting, with the most recent posts mainly praising the places in Medford and Burlington, which are just not feasible options. And although there are several near me in Allston, those seem to be very much second choices at best from prior posts.
So what are the best Korean places for lunch Saturday in the immediate Boston / Brookline / Cambridge / Somerville area. And just as importantly, what do you think are their best dishes? In other words why Koreana vs say the Somerville Buk Kyung and what dish(es) sets you drooling at the mere thought of going back?
