I don't know if this is already common knowledge, but I didn't see a lot posts about this place when I did a search. So in case anyone wants to know - O-dae san has a great all you can eat choice for $10. You get chadol (I don't know what that is in English... the thin sliced, sometimes fatty beef) and samgyupsal (pork belly). Also, you get steamed egg, a delicious piping hot, crispy-edged green onion fritter ("pancake" is really misleading), and then dwenjang chigae (soup) at the end. Tons of banchan, but no duk or moo to wrap stuff up in, but the kimchi there is really good and I threw it on the grill and used them as wrappers.

Tried the nengmyun too and it was very serviceable, but I wouldn't go just for that. The menu had lots of other yummy sounding stuff on it too, as well as a mushroom roast for vegetarians who want to partake in the grill ceremonies.

If you go up one tier, to $17.99 I think, the meat options multiply by a lot. I can't remember them all, but there was sauced kalbi, sauced chicken, other types of beef, etc.

Also, this place is clean, pretty, came with plentiful dipping sauces, and service was good for a Korean restaurant. Which is to say, everything we asked for came promptly, if just dropped on the table as the servers rushed past.

Basically, this is my new favorite AYCE place. The price is ridiculous, the place is way cleaner and nicer than Manna or Tahoe, and the food is definitely better. Yay!
