Korean Barbecue: Hae Woon Dae

I tried this a few weeks ago with my parents, my sister, and her fiancé. Quite good, really, but not the sort of thing I'd want every month, or even every quarter. To me, it's kind of a special occasion, novelty food adventure, rather like fondue at a restaurant like The Melting Pot. There's a bit of visual spectacle to it as hot coals are casually (but carefully) brought to your table and lowered into the in-table grill.

Highly recommended: the pancake, which we had as an appetizer; for barbecue, we enjoyed both the pork and the squid very much. Barley tea was a good accompaniment. There's also a sampler of kim chee for a starter . . . we tried it, and the remarkable variety is interesting in and of itself. I generally don't care for kim chee much, but was able to find several here that I rather liked.

This is not an actual picture of our meal, but it's very similar.

I could definitely see taking a visiting out of town friend here for a treat (read: scottwells). :)

If only Scott would read/post here!!

Glad you had fun. I drive by the mongolian barbeque near here and think I should just stop in for lunch and promise the kids McD's if they hate it. I admit, they get their picky eater gene from me and it wouldn't kill me to set a better example!

I wish he would, too. :) As for incentive to do the interesting food thing, think of the bonuses: it is generally very cheap, particularly for the portions given, and, depending on what you order, often fairly nutritious. It will certainly contain more greens than your average McD's meal. :) Definitely tasty. You can start by working your way from more familiar to less familiar. There's a *wonderful* Vietnamese restaurant on Buford Hwy. that I love, and I always order the same thing. It's essentially a noodle salad topped with sliced egg rolls, and it is yumnacious. :)

If you ever need any restaurant references, I'm happy to supply them. I'm a little rusty, 'cause we haven't been eating out as much due to pinching pennies, but if I can help, I will. :)

OK: I'm here
As it happens, I love Korean food. There's this seethingly hot (temperature) silken tofu and seafood stew that comes with rice and a galaxy of kim chee -- which I love. I think Korean is the "next big thing" but it is a bit hard on the digestive system.

As a self proclaimed picky eater, I admit kim chee scares me. It just LOOKS awful.
