Chosun Korean BBQ – The Meat Sweats

The Earth is shaking, storms are raging and nations are baring fangs.

At this point, I wouldn’t be surprised if I heard seven trumpets sounding in the night and a wild leviathan sighting.

On top of that, works been super busy and my ankle hurts. Life’s tough. I’m sorry we haven’t posted in a while.  But here we go, person on Reddit who asked about this blog.

 

After a long and arduous week of sitting at a desk for 9-10 hours a day, something woke deep within me.

A need.

A desire.

Something feral.

An urge to eat meat. But not just any meat cooked any which way. I wanted fire. I wanted flames. I wanted to see and hear and feel it sizzle before my eyes like Prometheus himself would have wanted it to. Just without that jerk eagle. So we left home and headed south to the land of plastic and chains until our eyes feel upon that which would satisfy this primal urge.

Welcome, to Chosun Korean BBQ. Home to the meat sweats.

 

Being that Korea might not exist for much longer, we decided to give this place a try. For those of you that have never been to a Korean BBQ, here’s a rundown so you don’t sit there awkwardly like we did for the first bit.

You’re seated at these cool tables with grills in the middle of them.

What their insurance must be like, I don’t want to know. From there, you order your meat selection (we went with C4, Bulgogi/Beef Brisket/Pork Belly/Pork Shoulder – it was a ton of food). They will then bring out the raw meat and all the side dishes.

This is when you start throwing the meat onto the grill. Put it right in the center. Once it’s done, just bring it to the outside edge of the grill. Then, you go to town.

It’s kinda like a BBQ version of fondue at the Melting Pot. You do the cooking and it makes for a fun, different time. We looked like we were lost so our waitress was super helpful and walked us through it all. It’s a very social experience so I recommend bringing some friends and ordering some Soju and getting wrecked.

You can also eat it however you want to. You can make lettuce wraps if you’re a bitch, or just be a boss and dip that meat into those tasty miso/peanut sauces.

The sides range from rice to kimchi and are great for breaking up all that protein you’ll be eating. Our favorite was the pork shoulder. Save that one for last so you leave with happiness in your mouth. Ha.

The bathrooms?

Clean. Appropriate. Smelt nice. Good mirror view.

How would we rate it?

 

Taste: 9/10

Value: 7.9/10 (pricy but you get a lot) 

Bathroom: 8/10

Environment: 8/10

 

Verdict? It’s time for Soju bombs and meat sweats. Go there.
