At Koreatown's Seongbukdong, the specialty is galbi jjim -- braised short rib -- which hits unbelievable highs of soy and beef. The ingredient list is surely huge but remains hidden; in the white bowl lies only chunks of short ribs, to be cut with a pair of scissors by your server, and some remaining braising liquid. Seongbukdon's panchan and braised mackerel are also fantastic, and its servers bound about its rooms with the type of speed and force reserved for Category 4 hurricanes.
