Mr. T and I have been on a bit of a kick when it comes to Korean food lately. Jung Sik, multiple stops at Mad for Chicken and most recently a feast of meat at Madangsui. They brought out the usual assortment of kimchi and side dishes to accompany our order.
The Hae-Mool- Pa- Jun was first to arrive. A nice fluffy Scallion Pancake filled with an assortment of seafood.
Onto the Mandoo-gui which were incredibly crispy.
The bubbly egg souffle was a delight to watch but the main reason for coming, at least MY main reason, really stole the show.
It may not look so large in the picture but this was the biggest plate of raw beef I have ever seen in my life. The platter was easily the size of my large Polish head.
The Yook- Hwe had thick slices of beef, raw egg and sesame oil all tossed together and served ice cold. I really enjoyed the thickness of the meat but it was almost too cold. It wasn't until the beef warmed up a bit that I could truly enjoy the rich, meaty flavor.
Onto our BBQ assortment starting with Brisket and Skirt Steak.
I don't know why it's so fun to cook your own meat- it's just so satisfying.
Pork Belly and Short Ribs rounded out the combination. Is there anything better than the smell of bacon wafting off a grill? I think not. I'm not sure Madangsui was the best Korean BBQ I've ever had but it was pretty darn good. I'm excited to find my next meat feast and find out.
