A new Korean restaurant promised to open at Village Square for more than a year and now chef and owner Andy Kim of Hanabi Sushi & Rolls debuted his own take on barbecue dining, taking over the shuttered home of Bachi Burger.
Inviting customers to charcoal grill quality meats right at their seat, Yukga Korean BBQ launched a roomy, 4,113-square-foot industrial-inspired space, located a short distance from the Regal Village Square movie theater and Kim’s sushi restaurant.
Currently only open for dinner service, but expected to expand to lunch at a later date, customers can opt for combination specials served with steamed eggs and a choice of stew, or choose from the à la carte selections.
Appetizers include beef tartar, japchae noodles and pan-fried beef, followed by the main attractions of pork, beef, yukba, and intestine combos that feature the option of grilling pork jowl, wagyu beef tongue, prime rib eye, brisket, short ribs, and marinated pork, plus less common ingredients of mountain tripe and abomasum.
Yukga Korean BBQ, 9410 W. Sahara Avenue, #150, 725-777-3826. Open daily from from 4 p.m to 2 a.m and on Sunday from noon to midnight. Dine in only.
