Kobecue combines flavors from the far east of Asia with those popular in the American southwest. Nowhere is this marriage more evident than its fusion tacos, where short ribs and spicy pork come dressed with onion, cilantro, and Kobecue's special sauces, and stuffed inside white corn tortillas or a self-addressed envelope. Those same meats can also be found in a hot stone bowl, sizzling just above a bed of rice and just below a fried egg, it's yolk begging to be broken and mixed in to a custom-chosen selection of veggies and scratch-made sauces. Kobecue’s signature burgers, meanwhile, feature bibimbob sirloin beef in place of a traditional patty, and arrive topped with spicy mayonnaise and all the fixings, while their Korean barbecue plates make a hefty meal out of angus steaks and short ribs served with rice, soup, and vegetables.
Guests at Korea Garden Restaurant play an unusually active role in the preparation of their food. Pops and crackles rise from the restaurant’s tableside grills, where tender beef tongue and spicy marinated pork sizzle to perfection. Though the focus is on Korean barbecue, not everything on the menu is so meaty. There are also plentiful helpings of kimchi and steamy bowls of soup. Among the latter, the two most popular are likely boiled cod pot stew and buckwheat noodles in a cold, refreshing broth. One of the oldest Korean restaurants in Houston, Korea Garden has been ladling the good stuff since a quarter century ago, when everyone was still driving around the city in vintage space shuttles.
