santa clara's el camino real has plenty of korean restaurants. in this day and age, the general "mainstream" public should be more knowledgeable about korean cuisine than to think that the only kind of korean food is "korean bbq." that's such a 1980s concept to think that. that's like when people thought the only kind of japanese food was sushi! we're way past that now.
anyway, this restaurant gilmok or "corner place" in english has a great variety of food. there's a huge variety of dishes in korean cuisine (as i said _not_ just_ bbq) and no one restaurant can serve them all. when you decide to go to a korean restaurant you should decide if you want a galbijip/sootbooljip (your popular bbq joint), a soondubujip (korean soon tofu soup), a hof (the authentic korean soju/beer bar/tavern experience), a seafood place, a chicken place, whatever... the list goes on and on...
now, that being said, i'll now say that gilmok ("corner place") _is_ one restaurant that covers a greater variety of korean dishes. for example, i'll recommend the dalkdoritang (chicken leg stew) and golbaengi moochim (sea mollusk salad) here as well as the haemoolpajuhn (seafood pancake) and the galbijjim (stewed beef rib). you can't really go wrong here.
also, the management is so friendly, you'll bound to have a good time.
