This 24/7 hidden gem located in a strip mall is known best for their galbi jjim, braised short ribs in a spicy galbi sauce served in a stone pot. It really doesn’t get much better than this, but if you’re looking for more, you also can’t go wrong with their oxtail soup (sulung tang). Another treat is that they have another location opening up soon on Western.
