Joung Kak

On its web site, Joung Kak describes itself as “charming and strong . . . an iron pot full of delightful and exciting foods.” This actually rather neatly describes Joung Kak's house specialty: do-it-yourself tabletop grilling. The accommodating staff brings a brazier of glowing wood coals to your booth and provides a platter of tidbits for grilling thereon plus another piled with garnishes. (The fearless may want to go with the full Joung Kak experience, featuring slices of tripe, beef tendons, and liver, but maybe it's best to begin with short ribs and sliced tenderloin.) Don't worry, they stick around to show you what to do, and which garnishes go with what grilled viand. Karaoke every night after 8, and Joung Kak serves until 4 a.m.


Best of Baltimore Winner:

It’s got built-in tabletop grills; an always interesting, always rotating cast of banchan, including one of our favorite kimchis around, and those endlessly munchable sauced-up cucumbers (dish name unknown); a page-long roster of Korean soups; and heaping mounds of barbecue, the real reason we make Joung Kak our first choice in Baltimore’s mini-Koreatown..
