​Try Pirate's Korean BBQ For Savory Seafood

If you love seafood, you'll love this Korean BBQ joint.

Who doesn’t love the taste of fresh seafood grilling over a charcoal flame? As we get closer and closer to summer, some folks’ minds may be on the the beach. One very popular summertime dish in Korea is jogae gui, also known as grilled clams.

A new spot in Duluth, Pirate's Korean BBQ, offers a tasty alternative to charcoal grilled meats. Located next door to Great Wall Supermarket, the menu does include an all you can eat meat option, but the house specialty is an assortment of fresh seafood that's grilled tableside for you to enjoy.

Pirate's Korean BBQ has several combination dinners which include a variety of shellfish including clams, mussels, oysters on the half shell and squid. Just select the assortment and size that fits your craving and party. Typical accompaniments include several types of kimchi, steamed egg custard, and your choice of rice or hand cut noodles.

The grilled seafood also benefits from the smokiness of actual charcoal in the grill, which is an improvement over the standard gas grills in other restaurants. Many people usually associate grilled meats with Korean food, but as the country is a peninsula, there is a rich history of seafood in the country’s cuisine.

If you’re not in the mood for a full-scale dinner, be sure to also try Pirate's Korean BBQ's lunch special offerings. They provided the aforementioned noodles in a delicious seafood broth, various traditional soups and stews, and spicy pork and octopus. At only $6.99 these dishes provide a great selection of Korean foods and at a terrific price. This lunch special is without a doubt one of better options in and around the Gwinnett Place area.

Be sure to stop by and try these offerings and the grilled seafood the next time you're in the area.
