It ain’t easy opening a restaurant, especially as a foreigner in another country. Linus Kim started low and slow with a couple of pop-ups in Seoul. Each one had long lines; each one sold out. He knew he had something special, but he took another year to refine his product. Linus now has his own buzzing brick and mortar where customers come and try his famous BBQ pulled pork sandwich.

Linus’ Bama Style Barbecue is open daily for lunch 11:30-3:00pm and dinner 5:30-10:00pm (and from 5:00pm on weekends) at Itaewon 56-20. Tel: 02-790-2920. 라이너스 바베큐 – 용산구 이태원동 56-20.
