BEST KOREAN RESTAURANT (2000)

Watching this little restaurant grow has been one of the more obscure delights of Twin Cities life over the past few years. Proprietors Sunny and Pong Kim started out a couple of years ago serving a handful of excellent dishes in a run-down storefront on Snelling. Flash forward to 2000 and discover a menu filled with absolute treasures--the salted, grilled mackerel is easily one of the most reliably wonderful entrées in town--and a rustic décor that seems to reflect more work each time we visit. When you go, be sure not to miss the mandoo--fresh, light-as-steam twists of dumpling filled with meat and scallions, and the delectable chile-and-ginger-stewed ribs in the pork-rib cheem.
