Korean BBQ @ Hong Kong

After Taiwan I had to stop in Hong Kong for a couple of days for a meeting. Teddy my University friend and now business partner, took us to Changwon for some Korean BBQ.

Why Korean and not some local food like Wonton Noodles or Roasted Goose? Well, Changwon is one of Teddy's favorite restaurant but he hasn't been here in over a year because it is not a suitable place to dine at with his family. Since our meeting is held at night he was able to take the night off from his family to eat out with us.

Like many Korean Restaurants our meal started with a wide variety of side dishes. My favorites were the Chap Chae and Bean Sprouts.

Assorted Mini Korean Dishes

For our Korean BBQ we ordered a plate of marinated beef, beef tongue and marinated chicken legs. The marinade for both the beef and chicken wasn't too sweet which is a good thing for me. The beef was also very tender and had quite a bit of marbling.

In addition to the BBQ items Teddy also ordered Braised Beef Short Ribs. The ribs were braised in a sweet soy broth and was quite tender and packed a lot of flavor from the braising liquid.

Teddy treated me for this meal so I don't know how much it cost. Food wise Changwon is not the best Korean BBQ I've had but is definitely above average.
