There’s usually an occasion to warrant a work dinner for our group, but this time around I think we just wanted to grab some Korean BBQ in Japantown. What?! We don’t have a Korea-town in San Francisco, hehe. I’d never been to this restaurant, but it’s one of those places that’s all-you-can-eat for a set price. Or at least all-you-can-eat when the service feels like refilling your table. I’m not complaining, we had plenty to eat as you will see. Overall, I enjoyed the food and it’s always fun to hang out with my work peeps and their significant others. There were only six of us that night which made it easy to pass along food as they were ready off the central grill (and split the bill, lol)! $23.99 each, beer additional
YakiniQ BBQ, San Francisco CA
The grill is located in the center of the table and it does get dirty throughout the night, but they periodically replace the grill top. At one point, we had too much meat in the center which choked out the flame, so a server had to relight it. Oops! I tried to get a pic of everything we ordered, and I was mostly successful. We kept ordering multiple plates at once so it was a little difficult. You’ll get the general idea of the evening’s dining experience though, hehe!
Prime beef tongue and pork neck meat. I’ve never had pork neck meat before and it was really tender and delicious!
Prime beef tongue on the grill.
Small intestine. You definitely have to use the scissors to cut this and cook it to a crisp!
Honeycomb tripe. Not my favorite, but they taste better with some chili sauce on top.
Marinted short rib (gal-bi) and marinated beef (bul-go-gi) on the grill. Delicious standards.
Pork skin. Again, the trick is to grill this to a crisp otherwise there’s no way you can even chew through it!
Garlic butter chicken.
Spicy pork belly.
Rice cake wraps.
Hite Korean beer. Large bottle $13
Hite beer in a Cass glass beer glass. It was my first time trying this beer and I enjoyed it. It was light and didn’t make me burp as much as other beers, lol!
