Wangbijib Myeongdong, Seoul, South Korea
One cannot go to Korea and not have Korean bbq! It was my mission to have Korean BBQ at least twice or possibly three times on this trip. A friend suggested that I go to Wangbijib Myeongdong which specializes in charcoal-broiled meat. This restaurant (chain) is quite popular, as prices is quite reasonable. A set meal for one person can cost anywhere between KWR8,000 – 12,000. We ordered a couple of set meals and lots and lots of meat.
Started with a mix of banchan – my favourite was definitely the kimchi.
I quite enjoyed this salad actually, mixed with raw egg – quite tasty.
Unfortunately, I didn’t take a photo of all the meat we ordered, but the beef ribs were probably my favourite and we ordered two servings of this.
We also ordered Korean seafood pancake which wasn’t too bad.
Service was good, food was deliciously tasty. We didn’t make a reservation but we did rock up at about 6.30pm and by the time we left at 8pm there was a long queue of people waiting outside.
Definitely worth visiting if you are in Myeongdong and if you want some Korean BBQ.
