When the Lee family took over a longtime Korean restaurant and put the “New” in New Shilawon in 2014, they made some changes. Here’s one: Whereas the old restaurant was BYOB, New Shilawon offers a selection of beer, soju, Korean raspberry wine and Korean Makgulri (rice wine).
Known for its home-style Korean cuisine, the menu at New Shilawon includes bean curd stew, acorn jelly rice soup and spicy kalbi noodles. And that is in addition to its all-you-can-eat yakiniku and shabu shabu options, as well as kalbi jjim, kimchee stew and seafood pancake.

All-you-can-eat Course A ($34.95 per person; $15.99 children 4-10) comes with ribeye, beef tongue, cubed beef flank, pork belly, brisket, kalbi, spicy pork, bulgogi and barbecue chicken. Or, there’s all-you-can-eat Course B ($29.95 per person; $15.99 children 4-10), stocked with pork belly, brisket, bulgogi, barbecue chicken and spicy pork. Both come with miso stew, salad and banchan on the side.
