Meatfest, Part II

You would think that all-you-can-eat meat on Thursday was enough for us.

Friday night, we met some of Mr. Monkey's college friends for all-you-can-eat Korean barbecue at Si Gol Ssam Bob (480 N. Western Avenue, Los Angeles, (323) 467-0100).

See those vents on the ceiling? They are useless. Your clothes will smell like beef. Your bag will smell like beef. Your hair will smell like beef. I think even my socks smell like beef.

For $14.99, you can get unlimited chadolbaegi (brisket), kalbi (beef rib), bulgogi (thinly sliced marinated beef), samgyeopsal (pork belly), makchang and gobchang (large and small intestine), and some other typical accompaniments.

Some introductory panchan (side dishes).

The accoutrements for your meat: doenjang ssamjang (bean paste), fresh greens, and sea salt-sesame oil and sweet jalapeƱo dipping sauces.

Kalbi in lettuce with ssamjang. I like kalbi the best.

Samgyeopsal. It's basically bacon.

Beware when grilling intestines. They pop and splatter a lot before they shrivel to their final crispy chewy state. I like mine really charred.

For $2.00 extra, you can get all the small squid you can eat.

I kind of felt like Sigourney Weaver tackling Aliens.

After you give up on grilled meat, you slurp up dongchimi guksu (cold noodle soup with daikon and green onions).

I'm not usually a fan of cold noodles, but I do like them after a meaty meal like this. They feel oddly cleansing.


  1. I hope you wore your 'meat' sweater. It just adds another depth to the ramen/meat infused sweater. Yum!

    Now i'm craving cold noodles. Your blog makes me hungry all the time.

  2. I feel like I learned a lot reading this post.

    The squid looks really delicious. I love squid.

  3. mmmm, bulgogi.

    that's quite a sex-ay beverage you got there.

  4. i'm getting k-bbq this week; your post made me THAT much more excited. ;-) btw -- the sauce you put with your meat is called ssam jang, a hybrid of (the more spicy) kochujang with the fermented dwenjang paste. yumm!

  5. Thanks, Angel! I've made the correction above!

  6. Wow, that squid. Um, yuck. Color me nauseated.

  7. That is a meat fest part 2 indeed. I'm not gonna lie, the intestines made me gag a little. ;)

  8. Bulgogi is my fave. Why do korean bbq places all look same?

  9. As much as I love your photography, this post might have made me go vegetarian! *lol*

  10. the first 4 pics of this post look straight out of Decor8! You're photography is getting more fierce each restaurant you go to!

  11. Hee. Meat sweater. I haven't had squid in a long time.
