Samgyup-sal is a very popular dish here in korea. You will see the locals cooking it up almost anywhere. Last night, durring a pouring rain, I saw some college students grilling it up underneath an overpass here at Kookmin university.
It is basically pork strips which are grilled, dipped in a sesame oil sauce and wrapped in lettuce. Some people add rice, or kimchi, or other stuff to it. It is really up to the person consuming it. But as is the korean tradition, you cook it yourself at the table.
Anyway. The restaurant basicaly has a large selection of meat which you scoop up and take back to your table to grill. For 22,000 won it is all you can eat and drink (which includes alcoholic beverages) for a three hour period. I have never eaten so much food in my life! Plus, since you are making it yourself, it is cooked to order, how cool is that!
Favorite Dish: While Samgyup-sal is the big food there, there is another type called Mok-sal which is better. It is a thicker cut of pork, and typically does not have the bones still in it. It is also more flavorful. Mix that with a little Shigum-chi (A sort of spinach salad) and it is quite tasty!
For those who don't eat pork, look for Kalbi, it is marinated beef, also a bit thicker and without bones. But is quite tasty too.
Address: Near the Korean World Trade Center
Comparison: about average
Directions: Take the green line to Samseoung (219) station, exit at exit 4 and keep walking. It is about 2 blocks down on the left and in a basement.
