Best Korean

Joung Kak

18 W. 20th St., (410) 837-5231

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. Must. Eat. Now. Add to that the feeling that every meal at Joung Kak is a special occasion—some combination of the mania that so much food on a table causes and the rush of the restaurant’s dining room—and it’s hard to justify going elsewhere. Also: Squid in a pancake will change your outlook on both things.
