Yukgogan BBQ, Hwamyeong

Hidden away in Hwamyeong-dong is one of the best value BBQ joints around. At only $10p/p for all-you-can-eat meat, Yukgogan is the perfect solution to all your meat eating needs.

And as you can see to the left here, Yukgogan provides over 20 varieties of meatables, including seafood. That's not just galbi, but marinated galbi, sausages, shrimp, even whole baby octopus.
There's also a solid selection of sides, soups and salads for you to ignore while filling up your plate with meat.

This is one of those places that, as an Australian, I am required to love - because they let you barbeque your own meat. Unfortunately, its just on a simple gas burner rather than the charcoal or hot stone arrangements of some of the fancier BBQ establishments.

On the plus side, the staff are way too busy (this is a seriously popular place with the Hwamyeong locals of every age) to ever bother you about your meat placement; habit of pouring beer on the grill; or whether or not you want to change the hot plate. Freedom and unlimited meat!

Some comments from my fellow diners:


"It's hard to describe the joys of this meat."

"You can't go wrong with anything here."

Of course, these good reviews might just be due to my BBQ skills.

The only warning I would give is that this place is really slow with drink orders. To avoid this, order drinks when you're first seated. If you need more, you'll have to suck it up, somehow dislodge your very full belly from its newfound home and chase down one of the staff.
