I finally got to try Porky and Porkie's, a buffet-style Korean Barbeque at 11th and Washington. The short story is, the food was delicious (and unlimited) and lunch is $10.95. They bring you little dishes of sides and you go up to the buffet to take the meat.
For those interested in details, the meat buffet contained the following:
Bulgogi (Beef; delicious, but I've never had bulgogi that wasn't)
Spare Rib (not on the rib, of course. Also very good)
Pig Belly (approximately Bacon)
Ox tripe (I didn't try this)
Chicken large intestine (tasted great, but I found this one impossible to chew).
All of the meats were quite good.
The salad bar had lettuce, jalapenos, sushi, potato salad, pineapple, melon, orange, and those little soy-ish pockets filled with sushi rice.
They also brought to our table refillable little bowls of fish cake, kim chee, seaweed salad, rice, sauce and one unidentifiable side, and one dish we assumed was not refillable that had shrimp, scallops, octopus balls and mussels, all to be grilled at the table.
The staff was very attentive, refilling our sides and rice and drinks, and even swapping out our griddle when it started to get greasy.
Those of us who didn't order drinks spent a total of $14 including tax and tip -- which made this lunch an extraordinary deal in addition to a tasty meal and a good time.
I definitely recommend it.
