This Korean restaurant near the Flushing Main Street subway stop offers K-Town standards at better-than-usual quality. The surroundings are pleasant, too: clean and elegant, with nice touches including buzzers at each table to summon waitstaff. Lovers of soondubu, that fiery tofu stew, might even consider Bitgoul worth the trek from far-flung boroughs. The restaurant's seafood version approaches perfection, served steaming hot, with perfectly balanced sour and spicy flavors and succulent bits of clam in the shell and other sea creatures. It's lighter on the broth than many versions, giving it an appealing consistency like mapo tofu when ladled over rice. Even if you don't grill on the table (which requires a larger order), the galbi (short rib) plate offers tender and flavorful marinated beef barbecue. Skip the ginseng chicken soup, however—that dish is better enjoyed elsewhere.
