Pusan Restaurant amd Korean Dinner - Junction City, Kansas
Pusan Restaurant & Korean Dinner is the kind of tiny out of the way restaurant that we all hope to find. Mrs. Kim who is usually behind the counter has run Pusan Dinner for over 30 years. She is funny and friendly, though I we have a bit of a communication barrier. She closed in 2018, but she missed working and missed her customers, so she reopened in the spring of 2022, to the delight of many!
On your first visit, get the Pusan Special. It is $14.50 before 1 PM and $16.50 the rest of the day. After about 5 minutes the food will come - generous portions of bulgogi, 2 mando, fried rice, a small swerving of cabbage, radish or cucumber kimchi, and garlic chicken wings. Wonderful food! I particularly like the bulgogi (thin strips of slightly sweet BBQ steak), cucumber kimchi and radish kimchi. I like the Pusan Special so well, it is what I get every time that I visit Pusan Restaurant & Korean Dinner.
Many people consider Pusan Restaurant & Korean Dinner to have the best food in Junction City and the best Korean food in the state of Kansas. I'm not sure that the menu selection is large enough to make that claim, but the food the Pusan Restaurant serves is very good! Since this restaurant is only a couple of miles off the freeway, this has become my regular stop.
My only complaint about Pusan Dinner is the hours - closing at 4:30vPM, and closed Sunday & Monday (not that I begrudge anyone wanting to have Sundays off). But if you are passing through Junction City a little after 4:30vPM, check to see if they might still be open. If they are busy, they stay open a little later.
