Korean-American mash-ups are certainly nothing new (ditto for the Korean-Mexican eats Kogi catapulted to national fame), but this sparse Rogers Park spot manages to execute its concoctions with enough pizzazz to have you reconsidering fusion as a whole. Sure, straight-shooters can do well with “bop plates," but we prefer the loosely packed burgers topped with an oozing fried egg, funky kimchi and a squirt of kimchi mayo. Surprisingly, the cream of the crop is a side: piping hot french fries drowned in a creamy mess of cheddar, bacon and kimchi. Yeah, we know, others do it too—but bopNgrill does it best.

Kimchi fries are a can't-miss item, but also be sure to stop in on the weekends to try the Philly bulkogi egg rolls (only available Saturday and Sunday). There's a limited supply, so get there early before the Loyola students have snatched them all up.
