Best of Boston

2015 Best Korean Restaurant


When it comes to Korean cuisine, it’s all about texture—the springy bite of puffy, cheese-smothered ddeokbokki rice cakes; the crisp bottom layer of rice on a hot stone bowl of bibimbap; the tenderness of long-marinated pork bulgogi. These classics shine at this chic Davis Square newcomer (see: Restoration Hardware-style furniture, copper mugs of frosty Moscow Mules), as do modern, fusion-y dishes such as kimchi-laced crab fritters and pork-belly buns.
