Korean restaurants in Chicago
- Sort by:
One of only a handful of nouveau Korean restaurants in town, Jin Ju throws a culinary curveball by tempering Korean food to Western tastes. The minimalist candlelit interior of Jin Ju echoes softly with downbeat techno, and the stylish 30-something clientele enjoys mains like haemul pajon (a fried pancake stuffed with seafood) and kalbi (beef short ribs). The drinks menu must is the ‘soju- tini’, a cocktail made with soju, a Korean spirit distilled from sweet potatoes.
