For many people, the smoky, rowdy atmosphere is half the fun of Korean BBQ. If you’re one of those people, go to Ahgassi. The massive BBQ restaurant on 6th Street has hour-long waits most nights of the week, but just know you’re lining up for some of the finest cuts of meat in the neighborhood (get the skirt steak, marinated short rib, and the house specialty large intestine) and an excellent steamed egg dish. You get one free with your food, but plan to order several more for the table.
