There’s a long menu at Jeon Ju, but you don’t need it. Just order the galbi dolsot bibimbap - a short-rib bibimbap that arrives at your tiny table in a piping-hot stone bowl. Eating it does require a bit of patience, though - you want to let the rice get nice and crispy on the stone before diving in. Luckily, they’re generous with the banchan (you’ll probably get a couple of soups, maybe a pancake, plus potato salad and kimchi) so you can snack while you wait. At around $16, it’s a huge amount of food, and a nice spot for solo lunch.
