We’re not sure if DanSungSa is the best karaoke venue in the Dallas area, but we’re pretty sure it’s one of the best places to eat while partaking in karaoke night. The Korean bar food here is excellent, ranging from classics like the preposterously big platter of fried chicken — enough to feed a whole booth of soju-pounding friends — to fusion foods like bulgogi quesadillas. If you’re not singing in a private room, take up a seat in the semi-private booths around the restaurant, shielded from prying eyes by intricate wooden slats and an excess of liquor advertisements featuring K-pop starlets.

Top pick: To survive the pandemic, DanSungSa announced that it would deliver anywhere in the Dallas area. And by anywhere, they really meant anywhere: Employees report delivering as far away as Allen, Arlington and Mesquite. Just do them a solid and make sure your order is big enough to make their driving worthwhile.

The downside: This isn’t a downside, but be aware that the same-named location in Carrollton is under different ownership and quality may vary. Fun fact: If you arrive at 6 p.m., you’ll likely have the bar to yourself. In fact, the typical meal here is so late into the night that happy hour, with half-off bulgogi and $5 skillets of corn cheese, ends at 9 p.m.
