Useful information


Soowon Galbi is situated right beside a laundromat, so this tidy little destination may not be a top pick among interior design divas. However, it is an authentic darling with two decades under its belt and always delivers when it comes to taste.

Pancakes, steamed eggs and banchan start things off, but like all good Korean barbecue joints, it’s all about the charbroiled and gas-grilled meat. Soowon is a cattle town in South Korea, so know that the beef combo is an absolute winner, with a variety of cuts offering especially good value at lunch and hitting all the marks in terms of flavor and texture. Whether indulging in straightforward ribeye or garlicky soy-marinated galbi, each morsel is charred perfectly on the grill and will melt in your mouth.
