Rating: Two thumbs down (and one down from Sarah) Date: 9/18/11 Time in: 5:40 PM Time out: 6:45 PM
Servers' recommendations: Tsubo kalbi What we ordered: Assorted vegetables, seafood yaki (salmon, scallop, squid, shrimp, and green mussel), prime outside skirt
Number in our party: 3 (Sarah is the guest critic today!) Final check amount: $47.99 Notes:
Sarah liked the mussels, and the skirt steak was delicious.
It does not come with endless rice, which we now expect from eating at Korean BBQ restaurants.
The salmon tasted too fishy.
The marinated meat was chewy.
It would have been helpful if the vegetables had been par-cooked. They took forever till they were done.
It was frustrating compared to other BBQ experiences -- there was just so much hungry waiting involved! Gah!
