Current Recs for Korean BBQ In Federal Way?

VibeGuy | Jan 3, 2010 12:07 PM

Previously, I was getting my needs for Korean cultural experiences (Korean Spa to purify, Korean BBQ to restore the shininess of my coat again) satisfied in Lynnwood, but with the demise of Newlife Salon and Spa, I've had to switch my spa-ing to Palace Spa in Federal Way. When in Lynnwood, I'd indulge in Secret Garden (shhh, the secret is that she won't admit how much meat me and my friends can chow down), which I'd describe as low-rent and non-atmospheric but tasty and fun. I'm looking for a place with the following essential attributes:

1) modestly-priced cook-it-yourself Korean BBQ
2) somewhere in the 320thish neighborhood of Federal Way
3) not cranky about new parties at 9:00 on a weeknight

Bonus points for:

1) charcoal vs. gas grills
2) full bar vs. just beer/wine
3) AYCE style like secret garden (SG delivers an initial heaping platter of meats in your choice of species and cuts, and then will happily refill, all for a fixed price)

While I enjoy the various cooked korean dishes, they're usually not to my friends' taste, so the BBQ is really the star of this show. So if you're thinking of some place where the BBQ is tasty, but the other dishes are inauthentic or slow in arriving or the like, feel free to recommend them.
