Grilled meat is one of my must-eats when I head to Korea. My recent trip there brought me to one of the best and more affordable (as compared to back home) places – Hongik Sutbul Galbi (홍익숫불갈비).
This no-frills barbecue place serves up some really decent cuts of meats, which explains why the place was still packed when we reached at 9pm. Lucky for us, one of the tables was about to leave just as we arrived. We ordered a portion of samgyeopsal 삼겹살 (KRW 12,000), pork galbi 돼지갈비 (KRW 12,000) and bean stew 된장찌개 (KRW 1,000).
All of the dishes were very delicious. Be warned though, that the bean stew is extremely spicy. Go try it yourself!
Hongik Station Exit 7. Turn right and go down the stairs. The shop will be ahead on the left.
