This is Kyle’s favorite Korean BBQ place. Now before coming here, I had heard him constantly talk about it, but I had the American version in mind. This is nothing at all like meat with sauce on it like we are used to in the ‘States when we hear the term “Korean BBQ.” You have a grill right at your table, where you cook your own meat at high flame. The sauces, salts and condiments they give you are to die for. ( It’s not spicy unless you want it to be.) There are lots of things to throw on the grill like garlic cloves, bean sprouts (which cook in the fat from your meat) and of course the meat itself which is so fresh it was probably walking around earlier that day. There is garlic salt and oil for you to dip the meat in before grilling. They give you a bowl with a glove and you make your own nori balls– and just those were die-and-go-to-heaven good.
We we would never see this in the US, which would not allow it due to health and safety reasons. I don’t see a lot of obese Koreans so it must not be that unhealthy? The Kimchi at this place was outstanding too.
Kyle has become adept at ordering and cooking Korean BBQ. The tab for three of us for this meal? A shocking $22 US. Kyle thinks one of the reasons it’s cheap is because they don’t have to pay a cook. The customers cook everything themselves!
