What is a trip to Seoul without good Korean BBQ Meal…. since we were in the area the evening, my girlfriends decided to check out the popular Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong Korean BBQ (강호동 백정) that is said to be very reasonably priced as well. And the best part… this place is open 24 hours!
What is so unique about this restaurant apart from the famous comedian owner, Kang Ho-Dong (강호동)? Well, the meat items hare uses charcoal stove for grilling instead of the normal gas ones. And to make it better, it comes with a portion of eggs served in a hallow of the BBQ plate. The eggs are grill to perfection which makes it yummy! Slightly sweetened, the dense and pudding like eggs is indeed a very much loved side dishes by us. What more can we ask for?
As for the side dishes, one must comment on the freshness and crunchiness of of the lettuce marinated with light vinaigrette, a perfect dish to compliment the grilled meats.
Overall the place are simply decorated, the crew are able to speak mandarin (to cater for the huge mainland tourist) hence the ordering and communication are flawless for us (as some of us could speak the language). Not forgetting to mentioned that tables are spread out giving a very comfortable space while enjoying a good meal.
