Westender Korean Restaurant – AYCE Samgyeopsal (Korean BBQ)
It looks super dingy and uninteresting from the outside but the interior was surprisingly cozy and comfortable.
We started off with a bottle of Cass because BB and I both have fond memories of drinking this brand in Seoul. ^.^
I enjoyed their banchans (small complementary dishes) and of course these are refillable.
The Green Onion Salad ($3.99) is a must order dish!! It’s huge so you can probably share with someone. But this salad goes amazingly well with pork and brings a good refreshing bite.
I forgot what this tofu soup is called but it was just a couple of bucks and super spicy. Not my cup of tea but definitely great for anyone that likes a spicy kick.
We didn’t opt for the AYCE which would’ve been $17/person (includes everything from samgyeopsal to sides to lettuce). Instead we got one order of Samgyeopsal ($10) and shared it along with lettuce for the both of us. We were totally expecting to order one more when we were done but it surprisingly filled us up!
All in all, this is a great place for samgyeopsal if you don’t care too much about it being served already cooked. The sides are great, the green onion salad is the bomb, and the prices are affordable.
