Default Korean BBQ

p1000114.jpg

This is not the best pic, but what you're looking at is our table at a Korean restaurant in Detroit. I think the name was New Seoul Garden? Anway, its the style of food more than that specific restaurant that is interesting. There is a small open flame gas grill in the center of your table and you cook the meat/veggie portion of your meal. They serve a lot of different sidedishes and white rice with your meal. Great food. If you get the chance to visit a korean restaurant, ask if they have tabletop grill and I think you won't be disappointed.

I agree 100%. We probably eat Korean almost once a week. I love the kimchee side dishes.

My faves are bool-gogi, yoo kay jong, and soon doo boo.

MMMMMM........

Its interesting to me that I don't like kimchee, I love very hot food so its not the heat - I try it everytime I am able b/c I really enjoy most dishes, but haven't come around.
Also, you can buy a great bulgogi marinade in many asian markets, its in a glass jar with a mostly red label and red top. The trick is to almost freeze the beef so you can slice it thin, then marinade w/the sauce and grill.

Reminds me a bit of Mongolian BBQ. They have a buffet of raw meat and vegetables.. ranging form chicken and beef to goat and lamb. You mix a bowl with whatever you want and a wide variety of sauces, then stand in line for some dude to cook it for you. mmmmmmmm .... I'm getting hungry.

I am a VERY picky eater (I don't eat most vegetables), but I like kimchee (or cabbage in most forms) just not the soggy pieces.

I detest egg/spring rolls for some reason.

I've been to Korea 3 times and spent about a year and a half of my life there. Korean food has never been a passion of mine, but good bulgogi (the BBQ-style dish cooked right at the table - "beef on a leaf" to the American GI) is pretty tasty. Most Korean bulgogi houses have a big charcoal stove that they use to create large, super hot coals that they bring to your table for the heat source. The meat, usually beef (sometimes pork), is sliced thin and marinated in a sweet, spicy sauce. When served properly, you take some rice, a bit of meat, and a few condiments (usually a spicy veggie mix and some sweet sauce), wrap it in a large lettuce leaf, and chow the whole thing down in one bite (lather, rinse, repeat until you're out of food).

Glibbidy, dunno if you've ever had true bi-bim-bap, but it's pretty nasty IMHO. The hot American version served over rice (bap) isn't bad, but the cold Korean version served with a runny egg over the top is just plain gross. It still appeals to some Americans, but not this one!

Kimchi is another Korean food I can do without. There are hundreds of varieties, and I really don't care for any of them. The cucumber version is tolerable sometimes, but not great. I love pickles, but the fermented vegetable smell/flavor of kimchi is pretty off-putting IMHO, even if the peppery spice mix is tasty.
