Woooot! One of my new favorite AYCE KBBQ places. A group of us came here the other night and ate till we almost exploded.
There are 2 different menus, one for $16, the other one for $20. We opted for the $20 one because it came with baby octopus, shrimp and spicy kalbi.
I'm a huge fan of baby octopus, I could eat them every day. However, the baby octopus here was not that good. The tentacles were good, but the head was so sandy I had to spit it out. Gross.
However, the chadol (brisket) was soooo good that we ordered 5 plates of it. Yeah. You think you aren't eating that much since the meat is so thinly sliced, but really, don't kid yourself. Meat is meat and it's gonna expand in your tummy.
The kalbi was good as well, and rib eye steak was alright. My faves of the night was the chadol and kalbi. I didn't get a chance to try the spicy kalbi cuz I couldn't really breathe after round 3.
Oh yeah, loved the rice papers and the sesame oil with salt dipping sauce. I didn't much care for the purple rice though. White rice!
As far as service goes, it was pretty damn good. They were attentive, friendly and even changed out our grill multiple times. I like that, it prevents cancer.
Oh, since 2 of our friends had birthdays that night, they gave us a free bottle of bubbly and made them dance in front of everyone. It was awesome.
We also had 3 bottles of soju at $6.99 and $9.99 per bottle. The $10 bottle was a bit smoother.
Overall, great dining experience and at $33 per person, a great deal.
