K-Bop comes from the same family that operates the well-known Kimchi on the Strip, but this fun new spot is the farthest thing from an average Korean barbecue joint. From tapas to rice and noodles to soulful soups, K-Bop’s menu is designed to go well with multiple rounds of beer, rice or fruit wines, or soju, Korea’s favorite distilled beverage.

The bulgogi dog ($5.95) is a great bar dish, marinated beef in a bun with creamy sauce and pickled veggies. Another tasty snack is corn cheese ($5.95), essentially macaroni and cheese that subs sweet grilled corn for pasta, as easy and pleasing as K-Bop’s solid version of bibimbap ($9.95). I say opt for the Korean ramen ($5.95) for simple, spicy, noodley delight, or better yet, a funky and massive dish of gelatinous blood sausage ($12.95) stir-fried with tangy kimchi, onions, carrots and tons of chili paste. Thick, gamey and volcanic, this stew-on-a-plate will stick with you through winter, no matter how much sweet soju you use to wash it down.

K-Bop 4235 S. Fort Apache Road #250, 740-5267. Sunday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-midnight; Friday & Saturday, 11 a.m.-2 a.m.
