OC Weekly's Description
Morangak functioned for years as the fallback option if the nearby, more-famous Shik Do Rak was too busy, but it's finally fulfilling its potential. Sure, there's Korean barbecue, each table equipped with stoves and fans, the smoke from a hundred eaters before you never quite dissipating-but it's okay to stray from the cult of burnt flesh. Take a dip into the bibimbap, rice and meat and veggies angrily sizzling on an earthenware plate, an immaculate overeasy egg waiting for you to puncture its yolk and baptize the plate-as complete a meal as anywhere in the world.
Tips from foursquare
Try the Beef Broth - Come here for 육수! (via @Foodspotting)
yummy authentic korean bbq - good bibimbap sans meat for vegetarians
Try the Naeng Myun (via @Foodspotting)
Bibim cold noodle(mixed with spicy sauce) is definately better than the cold noodle soup!
Everything here tastes amazing and really authentic. The staff is friendly and very helpful!
