Korean Foodie

A great place to get a general introduction to Korean food. A good selection of Bibimbaps and other popular Korean menus like Bossam (Boiled pork with Kimchi) and Dwenjang jjigae (Soybean Stew). They are known to use best ingredients shipped from all over Korea and uses no MSG.

Come hungry Editors' Note

Todamgol is a restaurant most noted for serving hanjeongsik “한정식” or the traditional Korean full course menu. While the style is quite prevalent in Seoul, not many do a better job of presentation and service than this eatery.

For those feeling starved to death for big portions, this restaurant is amazing if only for the sheer amount of food they put on your table. You can expect great prices considering this. Be sure and try the sanchae bibimbap (a mixed-rice dish served with traditional Korean vegetables).
