Bori, an upscale new Korean barbecue restaurant with a serious emphasis on quality steak, has officially opened its doors in Spring Branch.
General manager Joon Cho tells Eater that the restaurant made its debut this week at 1453 Witte Road, bringing a bounty of premium steak options and more proteins to the neighborhood. Like most Korean barbecue joints, Bori allows diners to order individual portions of meats that can be grilled directly at the table after feasting on plenty of appetizers and banchan.
At Bori, diners can start off dinner with dumplings or a kimchi pancake, then move on to a a selection of top-quality beef, including ribeye that’s dry-aged for at least 41 days, boneless short rib, and outside skirt. There’s also a few pork options, including marinated pork rib and pork jowl, along with pork and beef combos that pair the respective proteins together into combos that serve two or four people. On the side, order Korean corn cheese, steamed rice, kimchi stew, and spicy naengmyun (noodle soup).
Bori is now open from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thurday, 11:30 to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and Sunday from 11:30 to 9 p.m. Scope out the full menu below before making the drive to Spring Branch.
