Korean Eats

As someone who has grown up eating and cooking a healthy dose of Korean food, I think I have a pretty discerning palate when it comes to food, especially when I go out to eat. Throw in the fact that I always do a lengthy “search” before heading out for a meal, you might say I have an obsession of sorts to find restaurants that are really good at their respective dishes. With that said, here is my obsession in the form of restaurants that have made an impression on me.
