The other day, I was invited by a friend of mine to eat Korean Barbecue. I went to the Bamboo House over by the Seocho Acrovista out Gyodae Station exit 6. It wasn't the most amazing place, but you can't go wrong with Korean Galbi. meat that's on the bone tastes best and the skillful way of scoring the meat insures that the flavor will permeate throughout each piece.
The secret of Korean barbecue is that the meat isn't aged for long, so it doesn't develop a gamey flavor- the meat is real, pure. When the meat is grilled and then wrapped in leaves you get the flavor of beef mixed with the vegetation that the cow ate.
Korean food has been called raw, unrefined. I just call it pure.
