I was in for a surprise the first time I went to Korean BBQ. If I didn’t know better, I would assume that the Korean diet resembles that of a carnivorous dinosaur. I got an all-you-can-eat meal, and it was basically all meat!

There is a grill that is within each table, so the meat comes to the table raw, and then the customers cook the meat themselves. It might be a little intimidating to a first-timer, however once you learn how to ration out the portions, it isn’t so bad.

The atmosphere is fairly social, as quite a lot of young adults frequent it. It is an ideal place for a university student. Conveniently, it stays open very late, especially on the weekends, so if you’re craving meat after a night on the town, you don’t have to resort to the friendly hot-dog vendor.

It’s a fairly busy restaurant, so don’t expect the waiters/waitresses to be too attentive. Apart from the all-you-can-eat, they do have single dishes, but you don’t go to a Korean BBQ to order a la carte. That’s like going to McDonalds and ordering a deli sandwich when there is a Quizno’s just around the corner.
Again, like any all-you-can-eat, don’t go to Korean Grill House unless you are really craving. If any of your friends are vegetarian, stay away, unless you want them nagging in your ear, trying to guilt you into thinking that eating animals is inhumane, and that you should be ashamed of yourselves. You have to try it at least once, to bring out your inner carnivore.
