I went to a korean bbq restaurant for lunch - with my mother -
we didn't have bbq as, no one was having it - even with pictures on teh menu it was really hard to order -
I know what galbi is and bulgogi and kimchee and bibimbap - but the other stuff I'm not sure of - our waitress seemed to speak no english -
So we got lots of little bowls of pickled veggies, a couple types of kimchee and some toasted seaweed - and some broccoli, all very yummy, we ate them when they arrived, although wasn't sure if they were meant to be eaten with the main courses.
I got galbi as my main course, would have loved to have some rice with it, but instead I got a first course of a cold soup w/ cellophane noodles some lightly pickled veg and an egg - what was that? it was a huge bowl, tasted ok, but not my favorite - the galbi was really yummy.
My mother got a small portion of soup that was a reddish broth, lots of soft tofu and seafood - it was great and grilled mackerel which was also great, but was slightly salty - not oily at all, and a bowl of rice -
Would love to go back and try more, but it's pretty confusing - any guidance would be great!
Oh, here's where we went..http://www.madangsui.com/ - perhaps I should have looked at the menu prior to going - but I didn't plan that well.
