You don’t need millions in your wallet to dine at Million Restaurant. All that’s required is a healthy appetite for authentic Korean cuisine with prices and flavors that will still make you feel like a million bucks.
Located on Sheridan Street, the family-run restaurant continues to feed Korean food enthusiasts for lunch and dinner, something they’ve been doing since 1989.
“Most people, they like a plate lunch (for lunch), and then dinnertime is barbecue,” shares manager Diana Paik.
Bi Bim Bap ($6.95, lunch and $10.95, dinner) remains popular among customers. It is served in a bowl with vegetables such as bean sprouts, carrots, mushrooms and cabbage, with beef and an egg over rice. The sauce is a special to the restaurant, and is made with lemon juice and shoyu.
Another favorite with special prices at lunch and dinner is Fried or Grilled Yellow Corbin, otherwise known in Korean as Cho Gi. Drop in between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. for the restaurant’s lunch special, and dine on one piece for $11.95. Dinner is $18.95 for two pieces of fish. The fish is seasoned with salt, and regardless of when you order it, is served with rice and vegetables.
If you’re stopping in for some barbecue or yakiniku, Million Restaurant’s ample amount of booths are the perfect location for group dining with friends. Another great feature that will make for a fun conversation starter and memorable photos is the hanging air vent above the barbecue grills that make for unique decor.
