Chosun Galbee

I've been craving KBBQ forever and finally got to hit up Chosun with some friends last Sunday. It's pricey, but I really do think the quality of meat is up there. For 3 people the total bill came to $90. Dayammmmmmm!!

Ok, so we ordered a bunch of food. 1 galbi, 1 bulgogi and a fish egg soup. Personally, I wasn't too fond of the fish eggs, but the soup itself wsa tasty. Galbi was well marinated and cooked perfectly. Bulgogi was tasty as well, nice and tender.

One thing that I didn't particularly enjoy was how the servers kinda rushed us with the meat. They kept throwing the meat on there, when we were still eating. I like to enjoy my food and take my sweet time ok? Like the bulgogi was freakin all cooked and put out on a different plate within 10 min. What the..

I did like the vast amount of side dishes (banchan) they gave us. My faves- fish cake, potato salad, spicy cucumbers and broccoli. The lettuce salad with some kind of dressing was pretty good too. OH!! The seaweed soup- yummy yum yum.. One of my faves. Reminds me of my mom's seaweed soup with beef ribs back in da day.

Anyways.. one other plus for this place. Good ventilation. You don't smell like a smokehouse after. Yay!

You know the key words in this review are "Good ventilation" because that is what keeps one from smelling like Kingsford charcoal on the way home. Have you been to Soot Bull Jeep? They use real charcoal and I honestly think the fans actually blow air back in your face. WTH?

And Chosun has a killer seafood and scallion pancake and it's to die for!

PS thanks for the #FF :)
