Mouthwatering Korean BBQ: Del Seoul
Del Seoul is my new favorite spot in Chicago for a no-fuss, affordable, delicious meal. In the heart of Lincoln Park, Del Seoul offers a casual dining experience that’s perfect for lunch. There are no waiters, you just order/pay for your food and then they bring it to you when it’s ready. The flavors of all the dishes are robust and amazing. The tacos are my personal favorite (the shrimp taco is the BEST) but you really can’t go wrong with any item on the menu. I highly suggest dining in the restaurant rather than take-out so you can experience their cast-iron plates and hot stone bowls—your food will come out steaming (and still cooking!) and the rice gets nice and crispy on the bottom. It’s a great spot to go with a few people so you can share lots of the items and taste all the deliciousness. I can’t wait to go back again to try some new items on the menu!
