Off The Menu: Korean Restaurants You Need To Eat At Next

Cocobang

Tucked at the edge of a parking garage, Cocobang serves authentic
Korean bites to the late-night crowd: The restaurant is open everyday
till 2am and until 4am on weekends. We recommend the haemul pajeon, a seafood pancake loaded with squid, seaweed, and deep-fried fish ($14). Be nice, and share it with your friends.  //  550 Taylor St. (Tenderloin), cocobangsf.com

Starbucks Rewards Hacks – Know More
Dong Baek

Decorated like a traditional hanok, or Korean home,
Dong Baek makes us feel instantly welcome. Portions are large, so go
with an empty stomach. Folks in the know order off the menu—don’t miss dol sot bi bim bop, a hot stone soup with mixed vegetables and rice ($12).  //  631 O’Farrell St. (Tenderloin), 415.776.1898

Arang Restaurant

This hole-in-the-wall Korean cafe on Fillmore serves young crowds and is great for a quiet lunch or dinner away from the long lines of Japantown. Give nakji bokkeum (stir-fried octopus with thin noodles, $12) a go. It may be the most satisfying plate octopus you’ll ever have.  //  1506 Fillmore St. (Western Addition), 415.775.9095

Zazang Korean Noodle

Welcome to a noodle place with choices! Zazang Korean Noodle is perfect for for small gatherings and family outings. Don’t miss their za zang myun, topped with a thick and salty black soybean paste sauce ($9).  //  2340 Geary St. (Lower Pac Heights), 415.447.0655

Brothers Restaurant

Prepare for food coma when you eat at Brothers Restaurant, where the
staff pride themselves on richly cooked food and the freshest
ingredients. You’ll be seated at a grill where you can prepare your own
Korean barbeque. Must order? A plate of kal bi (barbequed beef short ribs, $15).  //  4128 Geary St. (Inner Richmond), 415.387.7991
