U-City Grill Bibimbap

Try the beef bulgogi rice bowl.

If you aren’t paying attention, you could whizz right past U-City Grill on Enright Avenue in University City, Missouri, and never even know it’s there. But first-time guests and longtime patrons alike agree that the Delmar Loop staple is worth a stop.

While it might look like a typical greasy spoon, the menu boasts bulgogi instead of burgers and kimchi instead of kosher dill pickles. Other specialties from the no-frills selection include bibimbap and kimbap (Korean seaweed rice rolls), but every dish delivers a balance of traditional yet approachable flavors for an affordable price.
