This is their signature Pork Belly (Tong Samgyeopsal) A korean favorite of pork belly chunks a citrus-bulgogi sauce base. Almost all of the BBQ sets we tried are lip smacking more rice, more fun kind of dish. It was inevitable, to gorge oneself with all the meaty goodness and countless cups of rice, I think I had five of them.

The various BBQ sets also come with a selection of banchan (side dishes) on the house. Sweet potatoes, corn on cob and some quail eggs for some carb fillers. Then there’s the spicy salad. a very nice side dish that’s light and crunchy to the bite and packs a light hint of spice that will keep you wanting for more.

Effortless Indulgence! Their Spicy Boneless Chicken is a sweet, spicy, and savory treat that can be enjoyed effortlessly since it’s a deboned piece of chicken leg quarter. The skin had this nice crunch to the bite and is enveloped by a nice sticky sweet and spicy sauce, then you hit the meat and its all tender, succulent and perfectly cooked. It’s as if each strand was infused with the sauce base.

For drinks I had the usual Raspberry Tea Mint.

A very refreshing drink with a nice sweet, fruity flavor, it goes really well with most of their food, especially those that are a bit spicy.

As for the BBQ Sets / Platters, starting with the healthier option, we got their Seafood Special first ๐Ÿ˜‰

Pieces of succulent fatty salmon and apahap prepared in front of you, cooked in a wonderful concoction that’s lemon and butter, the wonderful aroma is sure to whet your appetite. Tried both fishes and I got to appreciate their delicate flavors hinted with some tangy buttery notes, surprisingly I liked the apahap better for its light and sweet flavor. The salmon pieces on the other hand had this nice crunchy skin, then you hit the salmon meat and enjoy its fine taste and texture.

We also tried ribs in various permutations, the Boneless Beef Ribs and the L.A. Style Short Ribs.

Bone-in most often than not translates to a more flavorful meat. Fortunately their L.A. Style Short Ribs (Galbi) did not disappoint, flavorful pieces of meat with a decent marbling and meat-to-fat ratio. A sweet bulgogi sauce base that highlight the flavor of the meat, then you hit it with the spicy paste for the sauce and it compliments the flavors even more.

Their Boneless Beef Ribs (Kkotgalbisal) is a winner! Succulent pieces of meat with caramelized and crispy bits in all the right places, exuding a distinct fruity-sweet flavour that I just can’t get enough of. Really tender meat that’s sweet with some faint fruity notes then you hit it with the spicy paste of a sauce that further highlights the flavour of the meat leaving you wanting for more, more rice that is.

A Korean favorite! Pork belly chunk with a twist of citrus-bulgogi flavor

Their Pork Belly (Tong Samgyeopsal) was really good too. Chunks of pork belly and all its meaty, glistening fatty glory enveloped by a sweet sauce with some faint fruity notes that only highlight the flavor of the meat more. Took a bite and I love how there’s some crunchy bits but then you hit some of the fat and it almost melts in your mouth! A dash of that chili paste will go a long way, flavorful meat with a good meat-to-fat ratio. Until now, days after we had the feast, my stomach’s still growling whenever I see the photo, craving for this awesome meat platter.

For the sweet endings, they only have Korean Ice Creams, the type that you can buy at convenience stores, etc…

bulgogi_brothers_korean_ice_creamGot my usual go-to piece Binggrae’s Enriched Chocolate Bar / Encho. Chocolate coating with a vanilla and rich chocolate filling, simple and good.
