When cravings call for Korean cuisine, finding a suitable choice in this city can be quite an adventure in trial and error. Going with the first Korean restaurant to open in San Francisco is definitely a good place to start. Located in Japantown, Korea House has been in business since 1972, and features a diverse menu of traditional home-style dishes meant for sharing.
Meals here always begin with an assortment of small plates containing pickles, kim chi, tofu, fermented bean paste, steamed vegetables, and seafood. For the main course, the menu features marinated meats grilled table-side like Bul Go Gi, rice dishes topped with seasonal vegetables, a fried egg and chili paste known as Bibim Bop, and hearty stews and soups. Their selection of noodle dishes and fish served either braised or pan-fried are also worth exploring. For the more adventurous, exotic parts of the animal like tripe, tongue, and intestine also grace the menu. |Korea House|
