Daechi is actually the name of that area, 大峙洞
Jyeongyuk means butcher shop
Sikdang is referring to dining area, and the pronunciation is very similar with 食堂
|200g of Yukhoe for KW20,000 - It's good but how I wish they could scale down their minimum serving so that we can try something else)|
|Yukhoe rice ball (sorry, forgot the Korean name of this dish liao~)|
It's a "service", means free lah~
Strangely, it seems that only Korean and Japanese love to serve "service"
|This can never fail to make me drool :)|
Top set - KW25,000
Bottom - KW35,000
The Chinese lady's shift ended at the middle of our meal, another shy Korean young man took over. I am very sure he is the son of the tauke. He demonstrated high passion in his job! To ensure we don't ruin his nicely-cut-high-quality-beef, instead of letting us do the barbecue job, he did the barbecue and constantly check our pace. He barbecued the beef slowly, 3 pieces at a time so that none of them overcooked, and he will point at different side dishes after every round to show us how to enjoy the beef. I even saw him using i-phone to communicate with the Japanese couple in the next table to teach them how to eat. :) This is the reason why you should go to a butcher-shop-cum-restaurant at least once to learn to appreciate the beef.
By the way, they served very good seaweed soup too! I had 2 big bowls of them! (Nothing beats a good bowl of hot soup in winter!!)
If you'd love to try some authentic Korean barbecue in Seoul, this shop is highly recommended.
