While on the 38 Muni route, one food writer noticed the renovations every time they stopped at 6th and Geary — Dancing Bull, a new Korean BBQ joint, has now taken the place of the former (and somewhat sad) Hanuri.
Focused on bulgogi only and the grills it uses, the Dancing Bull offers a minimal but also extensive menu of fine beef combinations and reintroducing the people to the founding foods that South Korea has come to know and love.
Partners Jason Kim and Tony Chong
opened Dancing Bull in late August, and it’s been packed ever since. With a background cell phone billing (of all things), they wanted to try
something new and teamed up with chef Jun Lee, who has
25 years of experience in restaurants like Morimoto in Napa.
offers multiple versions of the Korean classic. Bulgogi-focused dishes like bulgogi japchae (sweet
potato noodles) and bulgogi dukbokki (stir-fried rice cakes), and don’t forget about the all-you-can-eat bulgogi, which comes with
your choice of beef or pork and bone broth soup and assorted vegetables —
all cooked on that one copper grill — for $20.50 per person. For
another $3.50, you can add fried rice or noodles to cook on the grill
after you’re done with your meat. #dead.
We can safely say hell YES to this new food institution… We mean, how could you not?
