Navigating Gabose's expansive, meandering menu, with its myriad Korean titles, food photos, and strange-sounding offerings, is only slightly less challenging than pronouncing the place's name. Rather than be intimidated, just read the descriptions, point to the numbers, and await your authentic, delectable, spunky, sparkling-fresh, and well-priced Korean cuisine. An accessible entry point is tangsuyuk — a mound of battered, crunchily fried pork balls in a sweet/tart apple-based sauce. Dolsot bibimbap will surely appeal to those who like eating the crunchy, caramelized rice that sticks to the bottom of the pot when the cook leaves it on the stove too long. When making bibimbap, that crust is created purposefully by cooking the rice, along with vegetables, chopped beef, and egg, in a scorching-hot stone pot.
