Lonely Planet review
There seems to be yakiniku on every corner in Tokyo these days, but this contemporary spot concentrates on home-style Korean cooking: dak-hanmali (whole chicken in broth; ¥4200), bibimbap (rice and marinated vegetables), sundubu jiggae (spicy tofu stew) and samgyeupsal (pork belly), which you can wrap in ssam (leaves of sesame and lettuce).
