Ham Ji Park is a lively BBQ restaurant in the heart of all the action on 6th Street, but unlike other grill-your-own-meat spots in the area, the two things you’ll find on every table are prepared in the kitchen: the pork ribs and the pork neck stew. That might seem like a lot of pork in one sitting, but the sweet and spiciness of the ribs complements the fragrant stew perfectly. Portion sizes for both dishes are borderline insane, so bring a few friends, or else you’re going to be carrying leftovers to the bars afterwards.
