Thanks to many a crappy buffets, I find the idea of all-you-can-eat pretty unappealing. But Korean Grill House (5 locations including 754 Yonge St., south of Bloor) has got the concept down right. It’s a do-it-yourself barbecue at your own table, so all the food is cooked-to-order exactly how you want it. For $12.99, you get an unlimited supply of Korean short ribs (Kalbi), thinly sliced beef and pork, chicken, squid, salmon, white fish and more. All these items arrive at your table raw, and you cook them over the open grill yourself.
My favourites are the Kalbi and squid, which goes nicely with the unlimited refills of rice and 6 types of panchan, including kimchi, sprouts and spicy tofu.
When you’ve got a hankering for an indoor BBQ and feel like you can pack away a whole lotta meat, there’s nothing wrong with grilling it your way, Korean style.
