Consistently regarded as the most authentic Korean joint in town, Ilsong Garden’s lunch specials, sushi bar, and traditional Korean and Japanese fare keep the people coming back. Particularly notable are the spicy pork bulgogi, bibimbap (rice, veggies, and meat or tofu with a fried egg on top), and the pricier chef’s special prime rib bulgogi. The vegetable pancake is good, but made even better with the addition of kimchi and shrimp for $4 more, and most meals come with an assortment of small and tasty pan chan sides.
