i went to chosun galibi recently for the first time. i was surprised that it we did not get to bbq the food ourselves. (also, i had to plead with the server not to put the raw uncooked meat on the grill with the cooked food. really, an elementry rule in food safety that they aren't aware of. it was obvious this place is all about turning over the tables as fast as possible and the staff is so frenzied about rushing through the cooking and getting you out it was incredible.)
apart from having to get rid of the over-vigilent server and the assembly line delivery of the experience, i thought the actual food was really very tasty. however, i won't be back b/c i would rather bbq the food myself (at my own pace) or just have the restaurant cook the food in kitchen and serve the food to me.
do diners get to grill themselves at parks korean bbq?
