Houston Press' Description
Korean-food neophytes might want to start with Nam Gang, a comfortable restaurant filled with Korean families eating at long wooden tables. A large portion of the menu is devoted to marinated meats (most are nonthreatening beef and chicken varieties, but you'll also find squid and tongue) cooked on the grill that commands the center of your table. Round up a bunch of like-minded friends, appoint one person to be in charge of the grill, and make an evening of it.
