I read before our trip that Hongdae is full of Korean BBQ places. I listed a few KBBQ places that I wanted to visit but we ended us just eating at this KBBQ place where we passed by. There were some groups who were waiting outside and they have a poster with Gordon Ramsay so we decided to try this place.
MENU. I found their pricing quite affordable since it only a little pricier than Kaya, one of my favorite Korean BBQ restaurants in Cebu. They require each person to order ate least one item on the menu. Since the sides were already free, we just ordered:
1 Emperor Meat
1 Pork Belly
INTERIOR. The place was just open and they have nice ventilation because I didn’t come out smelling too smoky after dinner. The tables were a little cramped but it didn’t bother us too much.
They also provided us with plastic and a basket to store our bags and our coats for it to not smell too smoky after.
Here’s us, in our cute table.
FOOD. We enjoyed every bit of meat we ate there. They provided us with various side dishes. They served us kimchi, cabbage, lettuce, some ‘taogi’ and soup.
The meat was also tender and very tasty. We paired it with a bottle of Soju because every Korean who ate there were drinking Soju or beer and we didn’t want to be out of place. lol We weren’t able to finish the whole bottle because we’re not heavy drinkers but the soju actually completed our whole Korean BBQ experience.
Here’s my bbq wrap before I rolled it and ate it. lol
I was already a little drunk by this time. lol
Would I recommend this place? Yes! We actually had a great time eating here. I’m sure there are a lot of better Korean BBQ places in Hongdae and in other parts of Seoul but I think this was place already a great find. The meat was tender and delicious and we saw a lot of Koreans eat here so maybe it’s a really legit KBBQ place.
