A new Korean BBQ has opened in Stamford on Bedford Street, named "Egane". It's in the cursed space formerly occupied by the awful Khan's Mongolian BBQ, and then briefly by an equally bad pan-asian place.
I ate there with my 10 YO son on Sunday night. There are about 12 BBQ tables, and about as many standard tables.
They serve Korean and Japanese appetizers, sushi, Korean BBQ and about a dozen Korean entrees. We had two BBQ choices: Bul Go Ki (thinly sliced ribeye beef in a soy-based marinade) and a pork option in a soy/chili base. Both were very, very good. Some of the 8 panchan that came with the meal were unusual: a very thinly sliced dried fish in a chili sauce, a root vegetable I can't identify in a vinegar sauce.
The beef BBQ was $22, the pork $20. Only about a quarter of the tables were occupied, and the staff was very attentive and friendly.
Overall, its at least as good as the other BBQ I've had on 32nd street in NYC, and it wouldn't be embarassed on Northern Blvd in Flushing. I'm a little surprised its as good as it is, right here in Stamford, but very happy to have it. My son, who loves K-BBQ, said all-in-all he'd rather eat here than drive to Flushing ... high praise.
Look forward to hearing of other's POV on Egane.
