678 Korean BBQ
Beef tongue, pork neck, pork belly — whatever you want barbecued, 678 have got it.
This Chinatown spot is best known for the ridiculous amount of banchan (that is, free sides) that come with the barbecue. There's kimchi, Korean soup, pickled radish and gochujang (a traditional fermented chilli sauce), to name a few. The soy-marinated pork short ribs ($22) are a must-try for every palate. For the more adventurous, go for the thinly sliced beef tongue ($19) or pork neck ($20) — both specialities that taste much better than they sound. The pork belly ($20) should only be attempted by pros, though, as it is easy to end up with a tough fatty layer. The place itself is simple with fast service that is great for groups.
