Love Korean food? Whether you’re in the mood for Korean BBQ, tasty hot pot or a warm bulgogi bowl, Jersey City has you covered! There are several great Korean restaurants scattered around the neighborhood, from BYOB spots to fine dining experiences.
Here’s a list of the best Korean Restaurants in Jersey City to wet your appetite.
K-Pot Korean BBQ & Hotpot
The perfect hangover remedy or a place to warm up on a cold winter’s day, K-Pot is an all-you-can-eat restaurant with both Korean BBQ and hot pot options. For around $40 + tax and tip, you can order as much as you want within a 2-hour window. Choose your own broth and sauces then cook your own meats and vegetables right at your table. It’s BYOB, so if you want alcohol you’ll need to bring your own, and thankfully there’s a liquor store right next door!
K-Pot is a really fun spot for a night out with friends, but be warned it gets super busy, especially on weekends. There’s often a one-hour wait in the evenings, but usually the line goes down much quicker than expected. The restaurant will text your mobile when the table is ready, so many people choose to head over to Brightside Tavern for a drink or two while they wait.
The restaurant is located in a strip mall, so there’s plenty of parking available if you’re visiting by car.
