Dinner at Korean Garden BBQ
Like a typical Korean BBQ restaurant, you have a small grill in the center of the table where you will cook the raw meat they bring to your table. You also get your typical set of Banchan, for example; kimchi, stir fried dried squid (mmm yummy!), bean sprouts in sesame oil, cucumber kimchi and more. The banchan selection was pretty good, but some was a bit tasteless. As for the meat, after cooking, it was a bit on the salty side, even without the seasoning sauce.
What I had ordered was the all you can eat bbq “option 1” which came with:
Banchan – Korean Side Dishes
Joomulruk – Cubed Beef Sirloin with speical sauce
Galbee – Marinated Short Rib
Hyu Mit Gui – Thin Slices of Beef Tongue
Dwaeji Bulgogi – Spicy Pork
Chadolbaegi – Thin Slices of Beef Brisket
Dak Bulgogi – Barbequed Chicken
Samgyupsal – Tender Pork Loin

The meat, although the better of the Korean restaurants I’ve tried, was a bit on the salty side. But, I do not recall the meat being that salty before. You will also receive a decent spread of Banchan which compliments the meat pretty well.

Service was good, but I do believe it depends on the day. Sometimes the waitress can be pretty snobby and others you’re their best friend. Tonight was a good night, and I received everything I had asked for within minutes. The only thing that I do not like, and I know I’m not alone on this, is when they come up and start throwing the meat on the grill and reaching over to flip and cook for you at any given random time. So you can be in a deep conversation that turns to silence because of this. A simple thanks, but no thanks should be enough to give the waitress a clue.
