MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
At Dons Bogam, the food is fantastic and service indulgent. So, reserve ahead as every seat is filled—from the festive bar up front right down to those two-tops sporting blazing grills. Make no mistake: this is no average K-town joint. Inside, a top-notch venting system lets diners enjoy a smoke-free evening of exceptional grilled meats. Start with fried pork mandu, which are crisp, on-point and extra divine. Wonderfully flaky buchu gochu pajeon is studded with chives for perfect flavor; while pork belly marinated in red wine is smoky and supremely tender. For the ultimate payoff, opt for the memorable beef platter. It features thinly sliced maeun and yangnyeom galbi set beside king trumpet mushrooms that are meaty and mouthwatering in their own right.
