This is Honolulu’s hippest Korean barbecue restaurant, where different cuts of high-quality pork and beef sizzle on the tabletop grill in front of you. It was started by the Korean celebrity Kang Ho Dong (that’s his likeness in the glowing cutout in front), who has also opened other locations in Korea, Los Angeles, and Atlanta. The atmosphere draws young and old alike, with everyone reaching over for bits of meat to dip into the moat of corn cheese and egg custard warmed by the grill. Servers are quick and cheerful—call them by pressing a button on the table—and happy to replenish the banchan, or little side dishes, until you can’t eat anymore. If only all eating experiences were this fun!
