Seoul 「서울시」 - Bulgogi「불고기」


Korea is a land of meat. If you are into fish, this definitely not the best place for you - even though alternatives like my beloved Bibimbap「비빔밥can definitely help you out there. During our first night in Seoul, the guys told me to bring them to a place with "local food" so we landed on a korean barbecue place, obviously.

I used to believe that Bulgogi - literally fire meat - was a generic term referring to Korean barbecue (same as yakiniku in Japanese) but the reality is that it refers to marinated beef (excluding ribs that are called Galbi 「갈비」) which is often cooked in steel structure placed on top of the table grill. It is typically served along rice, soup and banchan「반찬」- a variety of side dishes, often vegetables with a twist of sesame oil.
