Weekend Food Choices Week 95: Grilling for Lunch

Sariwon front-1
I was looking for something different to eat this weekend so we decided it was time to finally try the Korean barbecue everyone has been raving about

Sariwon-1

Sariwon has been serving their legendary Bulgogi since 1938 from the North Korean town of the same name.

They were awarded the best Korean restaurant by the Seoul Metropolitan Government giving tribute to the traditional art of Bulgogi.

unlimited side dishes were served to us as soon as we gave our main dish orders

my favorite would have to be the greens and spicy anchovies
Sariwon-13

our table grill was then assembled for our first dish, much to our delight

Sariwon-14

On the grill:

Galbi (Php545)
Sariwon-17

Sariwon uses USDA choice beef for its creamy even marbling and rosy red color

Sariwon-18

cooked in their state of the art smokeless grill using special ceramic charcoal that retains the meat’s aromatic properties

Sariwon-20

This results in tender, juicy and flavorful beef

Sariwon-21

So delicious!

What i love about Sariwon is that the server cooks the food for you, unlike the restaurants with table grills we’ve been to where you have to cook the food yourself…me and my aversion for cooking…

as we were enjoying our super tender Galbi, the next attachment for the table cooker was placed

broth made of fruits with Korean wine and spices was poured into the copper cooker to boil in preparation for our next dish

and the potato noodles were added

we finished off with a cool strawberry ice drop (Php60)

and complementary Sikhye, a traditional sweet drink made of malt an rice

I now understand what the hype is all about…quality ingredients make quality dishes!
