This is spurred by another discussion in the Hole in the Wall posting. What are your favorite Korean Restaurants and what do you order there? Is it upscale or more a mom and pop kind of place? The first Korean food I ever had was at Kim Chee II in Kaimuki, and I used to like it... not any more. I don't know if their quality went down or I just developed a more discriminating taste for Korean food..... Places I like include
Ginas BBQ: "Hawaii style" but still pretty authentic, mostly take out. Very reasonable prices
Cafe Milliion: a local style Kal-Bi place, I'm not sure I've ever been before about 1 in the morning, late meal after going out on the town with friends. I thought it was really good.
Sorabol: Probably the best known upscale Korean Restaurant here.
Cho Mark: Only ever been with lunch, favorite of a friend of mine who is hapa-korean/haole. Not cheap, but not real pricey either.
There used to be a place on Kalakaua between Young and Beretania called Suns. It was really good. Loved their nakchi bokum (fried squid in kochu sauce). It's been gone a long time now.
