Jong Kak

ADDRESS: 18 W 20th St, Baltimore, MD 21218

CUISINE: Chinese, Late-Night Dining, Korean BBQ, Korean

FEATURES: Full Bar, Handicap Access, Kid Friendly, Smoke Free, Vegetarian Friendly

DETAILS

Tableside cooking is ultra-trendy these days, demonstrated by the number of major chains now boasting romantic fondue-for-two or knife-flipping Japanese chefs. One of the most recent beneficiaries of the craze has been Korean barbecue, which allows diners to cook a variety of meats on their own tabletop grills. Jong Kak, which has been nestled in Lower Charles Village for some time, offers the added bonus of late-night hours, serving up spicy feasts well into the early morning. The menu offers options for risk-takers and conservative palates alike: Short ribs, prime rib, chicken, spicy pork, tongue and slivers of tripe can all be cooked on the tableside grills.  Seafood hot pots include monkfish, crab, shrimp, octopus and squid. Along with the meat, diners can enjoy embellishments such as the pickled cabbage dish, kimchee. And for those who prefer their food to arrive at the table fully cooked, there are plenty of Chinese, Japanese and Korean entrées offered, including plenty of noodle dishes. A sushi bar is also available. After 8 pm, head upstairs for drinks and karaoke.

 

 

Full bar. Serving lunch and dinner until late-night daily. "The most difficult decision at our table was whether and how to balance barbecue items with other Korean specialties; ultimately we decided to devote our attention and appetites almost wholly to the grilling of flesh."
