Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong 

Are you ready for next-level Korean BBQ? Check out Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong in Chapman Plaza. They do not take reservations and the waitlist is long even on weekdays, meaning you have to be prepared to grab a coffee while you wait or sip on a few pitchers at the pub next door.
