Girin does classical Korean cuisine well, but if you love meat, and you have not been to this Sodo area joint, I really feel sorry for you. You don’t know what you’re missing. If money is on your mind, then hit the happy hour to do some grazing. If not, then go all out for the 10 ounce hanger steak on the dinner menu. Amazing, amazing, amazing. Worth every penny. The restaurant's decor is a bit much, true, but the food here is world-class. CHARLES MUDEDE
