Fodor's Review

Once parked in the small lot of this strip mall, follow the scent of smoky BBQ to this casual, family-run Korean spot, a block off Convoy Street. Korean foodie fans, who swear it’s the best in San Diego, gather around tabletop charcoal grills to cook seasoned duck, marinated chicken, short ribs, pork belly, and beef brisket for $15–$28 per person. Diners also can order from the plentiful menu of authentic Korean dishes prepared in the kitchen. Beer, wine, and soju (vodka-like Korean liquor) are available. Service can be inconsistent and slow but the leisurely Korean feast is stellar.
