Whether you want classic dishes like ramyun and bibimbap, or fancy some DIY barbecued dishes like bulgogi and galbi, these Korean restaurants have got you covered. 

Dong Dae Moon Best Bibimbab

Arguably one of the best bibimbaps in the area most densely populated with Korean restaurants can be found at this modest little spot close to Terminal 21. Take your tangy, eggy, stodgy bowl of perfectly crisped rice alongside their excellent grilled mackerel or fatty beef cooked at your table by competent and friendly service.

P.S. Tower, Asoke Rd., 02-664-4088. Open Mon-Sat 11:30-2am; Sun 11:30am-midnight.

 

Doorae

After more than a decade in operation, this unpretentious three-story spot remains a buzzing destination, its air filled with the delicious aroma of grilled meat and its walls covered with autographed photos of local celebrities. The menu offers different cuts of beef and pork destined for the grill as well as staples like bibimbap (rice with meat, vegetables and egg in a hot stone pot) and hae mool pa jeun (seafood pancake).

T1/F, Sukhumvit Plaza, Sukhumvit Soi 12, 02-653-3815. Open daily 11am-10pm. Other branch: Beehive.

 

Joha

This compact cafe sits in a glass box that can only serve about 20 diners at once, which can cause lengthy queues. The prerequisite Korean oppa is there, cooking alongside another Thai chef in an open kitchen, where they prepare a small menu of roughly 20 items. Classics like tteokpokki (stir-fried rice cake and fish cake) and kimchi soup may not particularly stand out, but there’s no denying the pleasure of their flavorful kimchi fried rice

59 Ari Soi 2, 097-247-9777. Open Mon-Sat 11:30am-9pm.

 

Kongju

Established over 20 years ago, Kongju has long been a Korean favorite. Greeting staff in hanbok (traditional Korean dress) lead you to a dining room dishing out barbecue along with a to-die-for ho bak kal bee tchim (stewed ribs served in a pumpkin).

2/F, Pathumwan Princess Hotel, 444 MBK Center Phayathai Rd., 02-216-3700. Open daily 11:30am-2pm, 5:30-10pm.

Kosirae

Tucked down the back of Thonglor sits one Korean barbecue joint that has the Seoul expats tripping up from Asoke. Kosirae’s bibimbap is delicious, though it’s the inexpensive meats and tangy marinades that really keep the crowds piling in on a Friday night. Hang around for the sweet, snowy bingsu.

97 Sukhumvit Soi 57, 02-714-8683. Open daily 11:30am-9pm. 


Put on your stretchy pants, forget about the macros and tuck in to BK Best Eats 2018. This is the Bangkok dining that ignores fancy restaurants and 10-course tasting menus and goes straight for the comfort food—steaming bowls of fat-rich ramen, triple-decker burgers, all-you-can-eat dim sum buffets with an extra helping of pork buns. In other words, the stuff most of us eat out, most of the time.
