Boongho Japanese Restaurant
Where we've featured it
Hidden in the back corner of a strip mall, this sushi bar looks straight out of an ‘80s low-budget action flick. Boongho has private rooms if you want to go for an expensive multi-course sashimi dinner, but the move is to grab a seat at the bar and order one thing – hwe dup bap, an enormous sashimi & salad bowl. Dress it with a squirt or two from the squeeze bottle of chogochujang, a vinegary version of the red pepper sauce you’re used to pouring over bibimbap.
