8. Hahm Ji Bach

Carnivores rejoice: there is a 24-hour grill to satiate the most zealous meat lovers. Hahm Ji Bach, located on 40-11 149th Place in Flushing, offers an authentic Korean BBQ experience, complete with traditional Banchan (side dishes). Regarded as a beloved Queens institution, the restaurant offers a selection of meats, including beef, pork, chicken and seafood, which you can cook on state-of-the-art, smokeless grills.

However, the most popular dish is the samgyeopsal, or slabs of marinated pork belly that you can stuff into crisp lettuce leaves and top with daikon radish, kimchi and scallions. In addition to the meaty offerings, there’s also hot pot, Korean entrees and noodle dishes like Gamja-tang (pork neck bone with potato) and Hahmji-naengmyeon (buckwheat noodles in cold broth).
