Mo Ran Gak Restaurant

9651 Garden Grove Blvd. Garden Grove, CA 92844 | Garden Grove | 714-638-1177

Location 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.
