Our series celebrating the best local restaurants—AKA "bestaurants"—across the country continues! This one was brought to us from a viewer in New Jersey named Monica. Kimchi Smoke in Westwood, New Jersey, brings together Korean flavors and Texas BBQ style for a mashup that's just as unique as it is delicious.
"My food is 100% Korean, 100% American," says the owner Robert. "Amazingly, there is a similarity between Texas and Korean BBQ. It's really meat-centric. We're not about the sauces—it's all about the technique. You just want to lightly season it and it's about the way you cook it, the way you grill it or the way you slow-smoke it."
