Annandale (Koreatown)

Bang Ga Nae - website - Perhaps our area’s only North Korean restaurant, one look at their Black Goat Stew For 3 ($52.99) is all you need to come here.
Gom Ba Woo (Review) - website - Usually excellent homestyle Korean cooking; my last meal here was disappointing
To Sok Jip - (703) 333-2861 - An enormous Haemool Pajun (seafood pancake, here based mainly on octopus and onion), good, cheap whole fish (battered seems better than grilled which can be heavily brushed with bad oil), it's very easy to over order here, so be careful, jaeyuk bokkum is only ordinary, this is a seafood-based restaurant, and a pretty decent one, generous banchan, it helps to know Korean here
Oegadgib - website

Ju Mak Jib - Tyler Cowen
Han Gang - website - A reliable Korean restaurant with a huge menu, all-vegetarian panchan, sub-par fish in the Hwe Dup Bap, prices too expensive for the quality

Yamazoto - website - Robb Duncan of Dolcezzo Gelato claims this has sashimi as good as Sushi Taro, I've never been but I take that seriously

Chi Mc - (301) 750-1424 - Nearly identical to Bon Chon, 35-45 minute wait for chicken, get half-and-half sauces, enjoy some shochu while you wait
Choong Hwa Won (703) 256-8006 - Come here and try the plain (there are several) "jjajangmyeon" - Korean noodles in a wonderful, mild black bean sauce
