Bites 2013: Beef Bulgogi

Bulgogi is the poster child of marinated meat, which is to say it's one of the finest expressions of thin beef cuts patiently tenderized and seasoned to a palate-pleasing perfection. Due to language barriers, we couldn't tell you exactly what's in San Chang's rendition — likely it includes the classic soy, sugar, sesame and garlic and onion inputs — but we can say theirs is as good as the dish gets around here. Semi-sweet, salty and umami at once. ($8.99 lunch/$12.99 dinner)

Best Of 2011: Korean

One of my colleagues here at the Indy is a San Chang House aficionado. She says that it long ago set the bar for local Korean food; all else must be compared to these colorful plates. My guess is that she's not alone, considering Indy voters have put San Chang House at the top every year we've offered this category. Perhaps they, too, appreciate the friendly staff, who always make sure that new eaters of Korean cuisine know how to dip, mix-and-match, and eat everything. Or maybe they agree with signage that Korean food is healthy. When the results of fermentation taste this good and make you happy, who'd want to argue? — Matthew Schniper

Best Of 2010: Korean

I'm a newbie to authentic Korean dining, the kind of experience that comes with multiple side dishes and lots of kimchi. When that inexperience came through to my waitress at San Chang House, she patiently walked me through the menu, made vegetarian suggestions to please my palate, and not only served my food in record time, but showed me how to assemble my bi bim bap. No wonder why San Chang has won this award every time Indy readers have voted on it. Future plans include a remodel, and continually improved-upon recipes. —Suzie Calvin
