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). :)
