Korean Garden - Junction City, Kansas
Korean Garden is one of the newer Korean restaurants in Junction City, Kansas. Yes there are several Korean restaurants. Junction City has a large Korean community. I assume it is related to the proximity to Fort Riley.
I've never had a dish at Korean Garden that I didn't like. My favorite main dishes include kalbi (BBQ short ribs), bulgogi (Korean BBQ beef) and ojinguh nokum (spicy stir fried baby octopus). Most dinners range from $12-17 and come with steamed rice and a variable selection of banchan side dishes. My favorite banchan so far have been the cucumber kim chee and sautéed mushrooms.
Tuesday to Friday there are several lunch box specials starting from 11AM - 2PM.
During one of my visits to Korean Garden, I had a nice chat with the Junction City family at the next table. They had noticed my taking pictures and asked why I was photographing the food. They were regulars at Korean Garden who usually get the bulgogi, but I think they may have been a little more adventurous on their next visit.
Korea Garden restaurant's dining room is plain but very clean.
Our only complaint is that Korean Garden has rather limited hours and sometimes closes to new customers prior to the posted closing time. We recomend arriving a half hour before the posted time.
