Washingtonian Magazine cited a new Korean barbecue restaurant in Falls Church called Puzukan Tan—meaning “butcher shop” and “charcoal”—as different from others for using special grills that utilize both gas and charcoal for a smokier flavor. It recommended the “butcher’s omakase” to sample the best of the menu.
