Old Village Korean Restaurant 6

Posted on June 24, 2010 by Debra

The hunt for the best bibimbap goes on with the next stop, “Old Village”!  This little place, a few miles south of my previous review, is always busy because of  their barbecue!  Their claim to fame is the use of real charcoal (not gas) at their table-side grills!
