Marinated beef, japchae, lettuce, red cabbage, carrot, pickled radish, bean sprouts, grilled onion, finely sliced egg, and spicy sauce. $9.50
BibimBar, San Francisco CA

I learned my lesson last time and got the regular spicy sauce instead of the super spicy sauce this time around. I like this place even though it’s not the best Korean food. It’s a nice break from all the lunchtime sandwiches and salads in the FiDi.

Spicy bbq chicken & crispy chicken – Sorabol

Spicy bbq chicken & crispy chicken - Sorabol
With steamed broccoli and brown rice. $10.95
Sorabol, San Francisco CA

I will say that even though the Korean food at Sorabol is no where near the best, they are definitely consistent which is a huge plus in my book. You’re always certain what you’re gonna get and there aren’t any surprises. And you get a lot of food for a decent price – a rarity when it comes to downtown lunches in San Francisco.

Kokio Republic, San Francisco CA

I love these wings and fried kimchi balls because they just burst with flavor. But I can’t talk to anyone for the rest of the day because they are SO garlicky, lol! It’s also a great value since I really can’t eat these all in one sitting.

This was really yummy and satisfying, but I completely underestimated the spiciness of their “super spicy” sauce. I ate it all, but my mouth was on fire for most of the duration. Next time I’ll opt for their medium spicy.

All you can eat Korean BBQ - Koginara
Went here with a couple friends and had a great time! You get SO much food for very little money and the service was pretty friendly and attentive compared to other AYCE KBBQ places. They kept on top of our table when we needed more food and they were also good at changing out our dirty grills. I would definitely return!

They switched out the stone grill to a wire one midway through.
