Where to eat Korean food in Austin

Where to eat Korean food in Austin

While most frequent diners can probably rattle off some of their favorite Indian, Chinese and Vietnamese restaurants in the Greater Austin area, they may be more hard pressed to name their favorite Korean restaurants. 

 Austin establishments serving takes on the cuisine range from food trucks run by young people putting their modernist hybrid spin on their native cuisine to older restaurants that have been around well before bulgogi became popular terminology in Austin’s dining lexicon.

Charm Korean BBQ

LOCATION:

1200 W. HOWARD LANE

Your server brings you a tray of raw and marinated meats, and then you flip and turn the pieces of pork belly, brisket, pork shoulder and beef ribs on your tabletop grill.  In addition to the all-you-can-eat grilled meat fest, which is accompanied by banchan dishes such as quick-pickled kimchi, radish in tart vinaigrette and steamed broccoli painted with sour gochujang pepper sauce, you can also order from a menu that includes Korean specialties like a cornucopia rice bowl of bibimbap; japchae, translucent sweet potato noodles sheened with sesame oil and tangled in a mix of peppers; and kimchi jjigae, a perilla-leaf-packed stew infused with flavors of simmering pork neck and black sesame seeds.
