These barbecue joints are extremely popular, especially the 24/7 original Annandale location. The're nearly always packed as a result, even in the small hours when Korean teens over run the place. The popularity is well deserved. Sure, everyone will tell you about a place they like better than Honey Pig. But this local chain seems to always be the basis of the comparison.

"Smoky meat barbecued Korean-style is the obsession at these K-pop-blaring 24-7 hot spots, as evidenced by the vivid photos of various cuts covering the walls at each location. Meaty beef ribs, spicy pork belly, and thinly sliced bulgogi are the classic choices, but it’s worth branching out for slices of prime rib and boneless pork neck. …" See Full Review…»

"Annandale has a boisterous 24/7 scene with metallic tables and decent barbecue, often a young crowd late at night."

Bonchon is regarded by most in the area as the top purveyor of the "other KFC" (Korean fried chicken). The twice-fried chicken comes in a choice of spicy or sweet sesame garlic sauce and at some locations you may need to wait as long as 30 minutes for an order.

"… [O]wners Tom An and Paul Choi of the recently opened BonChon in Arlington (they run the Centreville location, too) decided to tweak their kitchen procedures during peak hours. Their goal is to have your fried chicken on the table within 15-20 minutes of your order, all the better to calm the savage Type-A beast. …" See Full Review…»

"… At Bonchon, you’ll encounter … a symphony of relentless crunching. That’s how ridiculously crispy the chain’s Korean twice-fried chicken is, even—it defies culinary logic—when doused in sticky-sweet garlic-soy glaze. The famed birds are the number-one reason to visit (or to call for carryout, though waits can stretch to an hour-plus), but some locations such as Arlington, Centreville, and Navy Yard serve well-made cock-tails and a short list of starters, too. …" See Full Review…»

Gom Tang E is known for its Seol Leong Tang, a soup made from made from beef bones, brisket and other cuts. But the other Korean dishes on the mkenu here are good too, so it's worth exploring.

"What’s that giant cauldron billowing steam in the kitchen? At these Korean places, it holds the house specialty, sul leung tang—a milky-white, cooked-for-hours ox-bone soup. Get it with brisket, then dress it up with scallions, garlic, and chilies from the condiments plate. Another pleasure: oxtail soup, which boasts a mahogany-hued broth and gargantuan hunks of meat. Liquid dinners aren’t the only reason to visit. Bibim bap comes with a perfectly fried egg atop the mound of rice and vegetables. …" See Full Review…»
