Enjoy Seoul Korean in Vietnam Town

It’s Friday night. You’re looking for a place to simultaneously eat sweet/savory Korean BBQ and watch high-energy K-Pop in a bright, colorful environment. No sense flying to South Korea – just go to Enjoy Seoul!

Though Enjoy Seoul is a Korean restaurant, it is located in San Jose’s Vietnam Town – the favored stomping ground of the largest Vietnamese community in the United States. The newly-built outdoor shopping mall is also home to many noodle houses, boba (bubble) tea shops, Asian bulk food markets, and various Asian-owned businesses that benefit the community.

After a filling meal of BBQ Bulgogi Pork (our favorite) and purple sticky rice, we always head over to The Sweet Corner for strawberry pineapple boba milk slushies and macaron ice cream sandwiches!
