The 2018 Winter Olympics are taking place right now in South Korea, and with them come a pair of certainties:
NBC will air way too many melodramatic stories about American athletes (are there any other kind?) at the expense of showing, you know, sports.
Somewhere around the third cutaway to B-roll of customers searing beautifully marbled cubes of beef in some smoky restaurant I’m going to get very hungry.
If you find yourself with a stronger-than-normal craving for Korean food over the next couple of weeks, here are 10 Portland-area (ok, mostly Beaverton-area) restaurants that are worth your time. With any luck, some of them might switch the K-pop video playlist on their TVs to an Olympics stream.
Of course, not all Korean restaurants are the same. Some specialize in soups and stews, others do-it-yourself barbecue. We’ve broken down this list with the reason to visit each. In other words, there should be something here for everyone.
