Charleston Eats: Sunae’s Korean and Japanese Hibachi Grill

Stopped in to check out the relatively new Korean/Japanese restaurant that opened up on Johns Island in what used to be a fried chicken joint. It’s a very unassuming place and doesn’t look like much. The food was very good though. The bibimbop bowl was hot and very tasty with a spicy red hot sauce you can have on the dish or on the side.


The beef bulgogi was pretty good, flavourful but a little bit on the dry side and lacking a bit in colour. 


The usual side dishes that accompany many Korean side dishes (banchan) were very good as well.


Definitely worth checking out if you’re in the area, and nice to see a little more diversity coming to the Johns Island eating scene.
