The first thing you need to know about this wildly popular restaurant is that it's open 24 hours. The second thing you need to know is that it's actually good. Even better news? An expansion has created additional seating in this two-level dining room, done up in spare, earthy hues and traditional wooden screens. It's classic, clean and simple-the message is clear. At Kunjip, the focus is most decidedly on the food. Barbecue is always popular, and is done quite well at dinner. The menu, however, reaches much wider with a long list of hearty soups (a big hit with the lunch crowd), stews, and casseroles. Everything is excellent, but a steaming bowl of galbitang-bobbing with tender and fatty short rib, glass noodles and juicy daikon slivers-truly transcends.
