Get your barbecue fix any hour of the day at this beloved Koreatown eatery, which serves up authentic entrées, casseroles and barbecue to an eclectic crowd. Hundreds of regulars flock here for very affordable late-night bites from a menu that boasts short rib soup, kimchi casserole and broiled beef with vinegar. But the notable favorite is clearly barbecue. Diners can choose from a wide range of grilled options, including the mega barbecue combo, which comprises grilled slices of pork, grilled beef brisket and thin slices of ox tongue. And if you're willing to join the packed midday crowd, Kunjip serves lunch specials daily from 11am to 3pm for an average price of just $9.75.
