Walking into the shop, I find myself surrounded by tables of the locals dining with shochu at the end of their work day. Frazzled faces, loosened neckties and a cup in hand.
This would be authentic wouldn't it?
the most memorable item on the banchan were the mayonnaise buttered corn. i LOVED this. and no, there were no seconds on this. imagine my face when i see the table next to me not touching theirs and it had to be cleared out -just like that- when they left. sigh. the kimchi however, needed a longer time to soak in the flavours.
we were here solely to try the meats and there's a minimum order of two types of meat before you get the charcoal grill going. otherwise, it'd just be cooked and served.
the staff do the grilling of meats for you but not that they keep track of timings. they just do it as they walk past. so still do watch out for your own meats.
the signature red pig pork was marinated with a reddish sauce and the eventual meat tasted like char siew. it was good but not overwhelmingly so.
the short ribs were savoury and went well with the lettuce and hot sauce provided. Mmm.
