Grills sizzle in the center of the tables at Young Dong Garden. At this traditional Korean barbecue, diners sear slices of USDA prime beef atop these grills, some lightly seasoned or marinated in the house's soy-based barbecue sauce. The scent of grilled short ribs, pork belly, or tiger prawns activates taste buds, while accompanying small plates containing sides such as kimchi add an extra kick. Kitchen entrees such as bibimbop and noodles dishes are no less satisfying or less desirable to sacrifice in a food sculpture.

From the affordable prices through the cozy atmosphere to the always delicious food, there’s plenty to love about Love Letter. They’ve got two specialties here: pizza and chicken. The fried chicken is juicy and tender. Also, if you’re getting a little tired of plain ol’ pepperoni for your pizza topping, try a more exotic option in one of Love Letter’s sweet potato pizzas. Both pizza and fried chicken are great drinking food, and you’ve got a fine selection of brew to choose from here. Just be careful with the spicy chicken: this isn’t chicken that has spicy in the name but is actually pretty mild. If you like a really kick, then you’ll love the spicy chicken.

The Flame Broiler founder Young Lee found himself eating out of paper bags quite often. His career required a great deal of travel during the day, which made eating from fast food restaurants a habit. Unfortunately, his options for healthier, quick-service fare left him craving something different. In 1995, he took matters into his own hands and opened the first Flame Broiler location, serving Korean-style slices of beef and chicken that were free of dairy, trans-fat, HFCS, and added MSG. He didn't just take away harmful ingredients, though?he also added his signature Flame Broiler marinade and sauce, beds of white and brown rice, and slices of crisp vegetables. This more nutritious take on fast food caught on, as diners can now eat at 135 Flame Broiler locations in four different states and two parallel universes.

Bann infuses traditional East Asian cuisine with modern culinary adaptations to create an expansive menu that captures the distinct flavors of Korea's diverse tastescape. Masters of Korean comestibles use natural ingredients to prepare dishes in an open kitchen where diners can behold their flame-wielding skills as open nostrils catch the wafting aromas of exotic spices. Additionally, all tables are fitted with smokeless grills so guests can watch their succulent servings sizzle tableside. Doo boo kae nip ($8), an appetizer of bell peppers, soft tofu, and scallions swathed in fresh frocks of sesame leaves is a great launching pad for chew-infused conversations. After premeal noshing, order a juicy kal bi, a boneless beef short rib ($28), or a yang nyum dak, a tender chicken breast stuffed with five organic grains and glazed with honey and chili ($18). Hungry herbivores can enjoy the bi bim bap ($12), a heaping helping of steamed rice decorated with seasoned and marinated veggies to stop tongues from diving taste-buds first into hot woks.
