Daebak is a solid Korean barbecue spot in Chinatown. This place is only a few years old, and feels like it - it has an industrial atmosphere and K-pop music videos projected all over the walls. The attentive servers are very good about turning your meat over the gas grill and refilling your banchan - and refills are very important, because everything is fantastic. Don’t leave without ordering a kimchi pancake.
