When it comes to South Korean food, there’s really not much that can outdo a Korean barbecue feast.

What could be better than grilling flavorful meat right before your nose in the middle of your table?

Along with the meat, leaves of fresh lettuce, herbs, cloves of garlic, chili paste, and a variety of kimchi side dishes are also served.

I ate this meal at New Village Restaurant, and ordered their signature Daeji Bulgogi (불고기), or thin strips of pork marinated in barbecue sauce.

The total bill for two came to 16,000 Won ($14), not a street food cheap feast, but it was worth it!

      Thanks Melissa, yah, all the different side dishes really fill up the table with so many things. Well for me, Korean food looks spicy and red, but it’s really not that hot. Yes, it is extremely delicious!

    Ha ha ha! Love how you call this a “mouth explosion of glory”, because I was thinking in my head “that looks like an explosion of flavor”! I’m not a chilihead by any means, so seeing you put a whole pepper in your wrap made me squirm, but the rest of it looked delicious!

    I Korean BBQ one of those things where the more people you go with, the cheaper it is? $7 pp isn’t too bad, but I do know that Korea is a bit more expensive than some other Asian destinations.

      Thank you for watching Steph! Glad you were thinking similar vocabulary to describe the delicious flavors!

      I’m not an expert on Korean bbq, but from what I saw, I think prices will still remain about equal no matter what group size you have. I think the restaurants really push for you to order at least 1 plate of meat per person. I guess a good thing about going with a larger group would be that you could get more varieties and cuts of meat to taste. And definitely, Korea is quite a bit more expensive than other parts of Asia I’ve visited.

      Are you planning to visit Korea anytime soon?
