Although most tables are forged in a vat of fire, only the most talented tables harness flames for their own insidious purposes. Enjoy fiery tableside cooking while you still can with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Korean barbecue and sushi at Koreana in Cambridge.
Koreana offers classic Korean barbecue, outfitting each table with its own grill to create a custom dining experience with built-in entertainment. Warm up maxillo-muscles with an avocado salad ($7) or the shrimp tempura, outfitted with a suit of crispy, golden armor ($10). Then, employ the classic good-cop/bad-cop technique to grill alternating edibles; two grill orders are required to use the grill. The pork bulgogi is a savory option, with slices of chili-paste-marinated pork bathing in a sweet and spicy soy sauce ($19), and the chadol baegi logs in as another meat nominee, casting sweet soy sauce and salted sesame oil in a beef brisket production that guarantees odd couple hilarity ($20). Vassals to the vegetable have plenty of options at Koreana, including barbecued tofu ($16) and rice entrees such as the bokembop, a Korean fried rice full of buried vegetable, egg, and kimchee treasure ($10). Flame-fearing foodies also have plenty of uncooked options, including salmon or yellowtail sushi rolls ($4.50 each). Kids get to pick on something their own size, such as the chicken teriyaki with a fried dumpling ($8).
Elegant spotlighting and sleek black tabletops create a chic atmosphere at Koreana. In addition to a grill, each table has its own ventilation system to maintain a smoke-free environment and deter gravelly voiced lounge singers.
- For Korean food in Boston, this place is one of the best. Quickly outpacing some of its competitors in food quality and service, Koreana serves some great Korean barbeque, bibimbap, and more. – A TripAdvisor reviewer on January 14, 2008
- This is probably some of the best korean food I've ever had. Every dish from the kimchi pancake to the spicy pork with tofu was incredible. The service was also great. – Charles X., Yelp
