There's no shortage of above-average Korean restaurants in Duluth , due in large part to the town's thriving Korean community -- Honey Pig, Dan Moo Ji, Pepper Garden, Manna Korean Snack Restaurant , Shabu & Shabu and Seo Ra Beol all make the list of favorites.
But it's a relatively new entry in the Duluth Korean food arena that's getting recognition as the best Korean barbecue in the country by restaurant search site Tabelog . Breakers Korean BBQ, which AJC dining writer Wyatt Williams awarded two stars when he reviewed it in September 2015 , beat out spots in Chicago, New York and Honolulu to take the top spot.
Breakers "oozes sophistication and class and offers a zen-like environment," Tableog writes. "The BBQ grills are down-drafted to avoid annoying metal hoods hanging over each table. They serve superior meat products such as 5 layer pork belly, 21 day aged short ribs, and use ribeye instead of the traditional tenderloin for their bulgogi."
For ITP-ers who crave Korean but aren't as keen on making the trek to Duluth, good news: The team behind Breakers is opening two intown locations of Seoul K BBQ Breakers Express , a Breakers spin-off, in Greenbriar and West End.
