강호동 백정 BBQ

One of the things that’s intimidating about Korea if you’re a solo traveler is eating places on your own. It’s not really that common for people to eat by themselves in Korea so sometimes you have to put off places you want to try out until you’ve got someone to go with.

While I was visiting a friend in her neighborhood I asked where she wanted to eat that she couldn’t usually got to on her own and immediately she lead me to this manly BBQ place.  I absolutely love Korean BBQ. It’s light and doesn’t make me sleepy like how I feel when I eat meat back home.  The food was good.

They brought out the coals for us to cook on and unlike the other Korean bbq place we went to we were left to our own devices. Which was mostly fine, except we didn’t have a clue what they’d poured into the side with a large kettle. Originally we assumed it was a sauce, but as it cooked we realized it was egg.

The restaurant had a fun theme which after a bit of research makes sense. The restaurant we went to is a part of a chain. It’s name comes from  Kang Ho-dong who is a Korean  wrestler/ comedian who is the main character found on the art around the restaurant.  We had a lot of fun enjoying their BBQ and noticing all the little additions like the character of Kang Ho-dong cooking meat underneath the no smoking sign.
