Delicious Korean barbecue and other specials (hot pots, stews and tang), served by a friendly staff who will help you cook at your gas-fired tabletop grill. Classic marinated beef (kalbi and bulgogi) is tender; kim chi and other side dishes are abundant, delicious and not too spicy for the uninitiated; and the grilled mackerel is perfectly done. You won’t mind the lack of beer when you taste the ginger tea, and the Korean tea that’s served after dinner– a cool, sweet concoction of ginger and cinnamon– takes the place of dessert and a brandy.
