Beul Dae Po

We came to this restaurant last night for my friend's going away for one month party. If you are not Korean, it will be really hard to find this place. Why? Because there is no English signage at all! I was completely lost and unable to communicate with the hostess who spoke no English.

Anyway, good thing my friends saw me and waved me over. Valet parking was completely packed in the small lot, so lucky me, I found a street spot across the street.

The food was decent, but I wasn't floored by it, and it was very smoky. Also, the grills were insanely hot and I almost burned myself a few times. I was disappointed with the sides dishes and they didn't have any salad or the rice wrappers! Side dishes were various kinds of kimchee, potato salad, seaweed salad and more kimchee.

My highlights of the meal were the kimchee fried rice and the spicy squid. The squid came out as an entire squid! It was scary! We were all like wtf? But, it tasted better than it looked. Thank goodness. Really really spicy though.

I can't comment on the meat since I didn't eat any, but my friends seemed to like it.

Not sure I'd come back. Service was good when they showed up. But, there are other KBBQ places I'd rather visit.
