Taking a trip to Kang Ho-dong Baekjeong means waiting for hours for a table, but according to guests, it's well worth it. This Korean BBQ joint is not the typical all you can eat restaurant, which only makes its quality of food even higher. You arrive to a table already filled with sides and your meal is cooked in front of you. The beef combo comes with beautifully marbled brisket, short ribs, and skirt steak. And if you want to splurge, then get the rib eye for $40. Another highlight is the short ribs, which have been described as the most delicious piece of beef ever eaten.
