Asian | Gowanus, Brooklyn

Insa is a Korean barbecue and karaoke restaurant located in Brooklyn, New York. This is a fun and eclectic restaurant that doesn't take itself too seriously, except when it comes to plating delicious food. Unlike the karaoke that many people in America are familiar with, Insa has several private karaoke rooms instead of a large stage out front. Four of these are intimate ten person spaces, while the last is a larger party room that can hold up to 22 people.

The barbecue on the Insa menu is meant to be shared. Large portions can be ordered and plated up family-style so everyone can enjoy them. There are also individual portions of things such as the delicious bibimbap, which are stone bowls full of rice and other traditional Korean ingredients. Check with the Insa website often, as occasionally the restaurant will host a whole hog barbecue, a must-attend event.
