Korean Barbecue at Shin Chon Garden
Korean barbecue is one of my most enjoyable dining experiences. At the center of the table is your very grill which you will place your choice of meat on. You can choose from getting marinated or non-marinated beef (short ribs, loin, tenderlion, or brisket), pork (thick bacon or short steaks), or chicken.
Shin Chon Garden uses this cute little turtle for the grilling surface. It's fun to actually do the cooking yourself at the table. Korean barbecues also come with various banchan, which is pickled vegetable side dishes, a side of soup, and some white rice. Also pepper, garlic, and condiments are offered to go along with the meat.
Normally, diners would place the cooked meat piece in a lettuce leaf, add in condiments and garlic and pepper, wrap the lettuce leaf up, and eat. The lettuce leaf give it a fresh, crisp texture to it while the meat is juicy and flavorful. It's absolutely delicious and fun for a party or a family.
