Jongro is on the second floor of a nondescript office building, and there’s minimal signage to point you in the right direction. But take the elevator up one flight, and you’ll wind up in an enormous room that looks like a small town that happens to be indoors. This is one of our favorite spots for Korean barbecue, and we typically get the platter that comes with a few large pieces of pork belly - but the beef is great as well, and you should get both if you’re with a large group. There will inevitably be a wait when you come, so put your name in and then kill some time at the karaoke bar on the 7th floor.
