A great option for Korean barbecue, Star King is a massive palace of a restaurant in Koreatown. It also just happens to be the only place around that serves Piedmontese beef tomahawk, the center of the rib-eye, very thick and on the bone, like an oversized chop. Star King is using brisket, boneless short ribs, rib-eye steaks and tongue and intestines, which are popular with Koreans.
