It is interesting to note that while most Korean restaurants offer BBQ options on their menus to satisfy the American palate, the concept of unlimited meat is not widespread in Korea. The average Korean prefers different cuts of meat, more like gal-bi (marinated short rib), with a variety of marinades and sauces. The AYCE restaurant trend is rare in Korea due to the higher cost of ingredients, and it is more common for social gatherings or company outings rather than a family meal. For many Koreans, eating BBQ is not a traditional everyday fare. It is reserved for special occasions or family outings, just as most Japanese do not eat sushi everyday.
Haven't had a chance to try these restaurants? You're in luck! Gwinnett Restaurant Week 2016 has three Korean BBQ participants—Breakers Korean BBQ & Grill, Honey Pig and The Stone Grill—for you, your family and friends to try.
