Rating: First time and I liked it
On reading this, you must recognize that this is “Second Dinner.” After a special Krug Champagne dinner event — with 5 or so courses of modern cuisine — four of us just didn’t feel full enough so headed out to Korea Town to “snack.”
Never been to this kind of Korean Seafood BBQ so I was excited to try.
This plate has seen some heat. Anyway, we ordered the works.
Various condiments for wrapped up one’s BBQ. Radishes, sauce, egg (both yolk and white), carrots, peppers, cabbage etc.
Leaves and oniony stuff.
Soy and garlic.
Hot sauce. It is a Korean restaurant after all.
Coming off our Champagne tasting we decided to go with Solju / Beer shots. Sort of like a sake bomb. You fill a glass about 3/4 with beer.
Then drop a shot-glass of solju (Korean vodka) in to make sure it’s extra strong. Tastes great too!
Crispy fritters with mayo. Great drinking food.
Seafood pancake. This was a delicious one too.
Corn “pudding” with dynamite or whatever on top and baked.
Cold sliced pig foot salad. Yum (really was good).
Korean fluffy egg.
Our modest seafood plate arrives.
The BBQ is real coals.
Eel (left) and hagfish (right). Not sure I’ve had hagfish before. It looks like snack. Abalone was on the far right.
They cut up the chunks as it BBQs. Hagfish had a delightful chewy texture white the eel was nice and rich.
Dinner comes with special Korean Michael Jackson “white gloves” so that you don’t burn your hand while working the hot grill. They really helped actually.
Clams. When they open you eat them.
Spicy Soft Tofu Soup with Seafood. Delicious and a bit spicy.
Spicy noodle and tofu soup. Because when it’s time for second dinner, you need a second stew too!
Cheesy clams and scallops on the BBQ. The cheese melts into a yummy mess.
Some kind of conch or clam back there.
The four of us actually managed to eat most of this feast — pretty impressive after having this dinner right before!
I’d like to come back to Get Bbul a bit hungrier and get even more, but what I had was very good and quite interesting. I’ve never had this kind of grilled seafood with these exact trappings and it was quite interesting.
