by Basaic

Ma Dang Sae (as listed in phone book)/Ma Dang Soi (if you read the Hangul) is an authentic Korean Style BBQ Restaurant. You order the meat and they fire up the grill in the middle of the table and you cook it yourself. Roll the meat up in a wrapper with red pepper paste and a little garlic and stuff it in your mouth. Throw normal US table manners out the window. Make sure you sample all the side dishes and try that staple of korean dining, kimchi. Wash it down with soju if you feel adventurous. We did! My friends and I were the only non-Koreans in the place.

Favorite Dish: Sam Gyop Sal which is pork cooked on the grill and stuffed into a wrapper. It's sloppy but it tastes great.
