Competition is high when it comes to the best Korean restaurant in Frankfurt, but the modern and stylish Sonamu in the Bornheim district is convenient to access and serves up very good food. Run by a second-generation German-Korean born up the road in Wiesbaden who speaks German, Korean and English, the atmosphere is calm and relaxed and the service very friendly. The galbi (grilled ribs) and bibimbap are both worth a try. There’s a good selection of drinks as well, including some very good bourbons for American whisky fans. Reservations recommended.
Time Out tip: If you need a coffee to perk you up after lunch at Sonamu, you’ll find one of Frankfurt’s best coffee shops - Wacker’s - a short walk back up Berger Straße past Bornheim Mitte U-Bahn station.
