If you are fan of Korean food, we recommend the Korean BBQ Grill, a short 20 minute drive down the Boston Post Road in New Rochelle.

The no frills eat in or take out storefront on Main Street has comfortable tables and a friendly staff. We recommend the deep fried squid – far better that the standard run of the mill "calamari" and the bubble tea.
If you have not had bubble tea, it is a cold, tea based drink that comes in fruit and other flavors such as cappuccino, and at the bottom sits flavored tapioca balls that shoot up your drinking straw. Yes, it is hard to explain, but unusual, fun and delicious.
(PHOTO: Boom! The bi-bim-bab delivers the goods.)
The spicy chicken wings are a favorite, and you cannot go wrong with the classic bi-bim-bab – the hot stone bowl full of rice, veggies and egg. We prefer the beef or spicy pork versions, but you can also choose chicken or vegetable.
