Jin Ju

5203 N Clark
Chicago, IL 60649


Neither the flashiest nor the humblest place for Korean fare, this inviting neighborhood staple relies on expertly cooked meats and well-seasoned sauces served at honorable prices to keep the buzz going. Look to the amiable servers to guide your selections, but make sure to go light on unremarkable appetizers to save room for the bountiful bowlfuls that await. Mouthwatering dak bulgogi—a kicky chicken dish punched up with addictive caramelized potatoes—and succulent kalbi—a saucy mélange of braised short ribs and veggies—are both divine. Bypass the syrupy-sweet specialty martinis in favor of a bottle of Korean lager.
