Everyone remembers sneaking downstairs at midnight to clandestinely microwave an Ellio’s Pizza (usually with mixed results, such as an irate, pizza-starved Dad). It was late, but you didn’t care — sometimes a bite was just what you needed before heading off to sleep. With that in mind, we decided to scour the country for the most amazing late-night-only menus America has to offer. These places might look unassuming during the day, but after sundown, they transform to roll out some true surprises.
And because we’re always hungry, let us know what we’re missing while we’re sleeping (or settling for another hot dog) in the comments.
When you can get it: Tuesday-Saturday, 11pm-1am
What it is: This authentic Korean spot in our nation’s capital serves up — you guessed it! — traditional Korean dishes to political types and presumably Frank Underwood’s more adventurous cousin every day for lunch and dinner, but converts into an innovative Korean fusion joint when closing time grows near. Think Korean BBQ tacos, double-fried chicken, kimchi quesadillas, and something called a “kimchizza”. There’s no saying down in Gaffney for stuff like this.
