Sam Won Garden Korean Restaurant

According to locals, Sam Won on McCart Avenue is “the best authentic Korean food that you can find” in the Fort Worth area. A husband and wife team runs this eatery, and they feature a menu filled with everything from traditional soup to specialty barbecue. Pick from tasty options, such as tempura-style shrimp, spicy barbecue chicken, steamed dumplings, and kimchi pancakes.

At this Korean restaurant, you’ll get exceptional service, welcoming staff, and top-quality food for the price, whether you stop by for lunch or dinner. Dine-in at neatly partitioned tables or call ahead and take your meal to a local park for a family picnic.

Jin Korean BBQ

Head to Jin’s on South Cooper Street when you’ve got a craving for barbecue. This place isn’t your typical restaurant. Once you have a seat, a server will present you with a checklist, so you can mark which items you want. Pick from side dishes to a selection of meat, and once they bring out your order, you get to grill it right at your table.
You may be surprised by Jin’s selection of ingredients, attention to quality, and huge portions — all served in a modern atmosphere. The staff is attentive and happy to help you through the checklist. There’s limited indoor seating, and the staff has really revamped measures to help keep diners safe.

Paul’s Kitchen NAMOO

Paul’s is a hidden gem in a cute area of nearby North Richland Hills. It offers hungry guests both scratch-made Korean cuisine and plentiful portion sizes. The restaurant is inviting with tons of natural light. They offer snacks like Asian treats if you’re craving sweets. Ask about your free items like seaweed soup, bottled water, and even a complimentary dessert.

Try an order of tender short ribs with a side of flavorful noodles. Paul always cooks the sticky rice to perfection, and the spicy chicken has just the right oomph. Get your order hot, fresh, and delicious, all delivered courtesy of DoorDash and Uber Eats. If you’re placing your order from work, get the lunch box. It features rice, a salad, tempura shrimp, fried dumplings, and Japchae noodles.

BB.Q Chicken

What do you get when you pair up Korean fried chicken and beer? A delicious meal at BB.Q Chicken, that’s what. Located in Arlington on Southwest Green Oaks Boulevard, this Asian kitchen offers takeout and dine-in with the K-pop soundtrack playing above.

Their house-special chicken is fried golden brown and is always served up hot and juicy and delicious. If you like wings, BB.Q’s are huge. Get some with a side of crispy sweet potato or waffle fries. Both are finger-licking good. This restaurant has a very effective setup for social distancing, including plexiglass shields at both ends of the table and outdoor dining on the new patio. Be ready to wash your hands and have your temperature checked before you sit down.

Char’d: Southeast Asian Kitchen

Char’d is located on Tehama Ridge Parkway near the UPS store. It’s a savory mix of healthy Korean-inspired and fusion-style eats. Here you get the freedom to mix and match flavors from different Asian regions. Fuel your creativity and eat whatever you want, like a bahn mi sandwich or the rice curry bowl.

This southeast kitchen offers an outstanding selection of ingredients to build your own meal, or you can order a pre-configured dish if you find a menu item that satisfies your taste. Everything from Char’d is freshly prepared and ready to eat — or go — in minutes. There’s plenty of food so that you won’t leave hungry, and you can always snack on the free celery and carrot soup.

Hanu Korean Grill

Head downtown to Hanu Korean Grill. Located on West Third Street, this restaurant made our list because of its Bento Box. This delicious ensemble includes your choice of protein, from tofu and salmon to beef, pork, or chicken, plus loads of sides. You’ll leave the table stuffed, thanks to generous portions of sweet potato noodles, white rice, kimchi, dumplings, miso soup, and a house salad with ginger dressing.
Rice Master

Hop in your new GMC and head about 16 miles south to Burleson. Here you’ll find Rice Master, a Korean BBQ Bibimbop. You’re about to Google “What is a Bibimbop?” right now, aren’t you? It’s an Asian rice dish that’s usually served warm in a bowl and topped with fermented kimchi or doenjang, herbs like namul, and sauces like spicy gochujang and classic soy.

If that doesn’t sound yummy, try the Korean street ramen and a hot stone rice bowl. For a pseudo-fast food place, its flavor profiles are on point. With its exquisite food, cozy atmosphere, and stellar service, it’s a hard one to pass up.
