Carnivore attention! Awesome Korean BBQ in the Bay Area

Carnivore attention! Awesome Korean BBQ in the Bay Area

The essence of Korean classic meat cuisine is all concentrated on the barbecue. Imagine the thick but not greasy pork belly and the tender and juicy Kobe beef. Presumably you have drooled. Bay Area's Korean barbecue is mostly concentrated in Oakland, Santa Clara and Geary Blvd, these places are almost a paradise for meat lovers. As a team of mostly carnivorous animals, in order to benefit those who are also carnivores, we have summarized these fourteen Korean-style barbecue restaurants that are also delicious!

Dancing Bull

Dancing Bull is a self-service Korean barbecue restaurant featuring Bulgogi. The barbecue tool here, a domed copper pot, looks like hot pot, but it is not. Ingenious design, so that the soup can be held at the edges, and you can continue to “roast” the rice in the copper pan after eating the marinated barbecue! A special Bulgogi Shabu is also served here. Friends who are interested can try it ~

Jang Soo BBQ

Jang Soo BBQ is an old shop opened in 1952. It is decorated with antique taste, flower pots on the windowsill, and the interior walls of the bluestone slabs add a lot to the environment of the shop. The waiters also wear traditional clothes. But for food, there are roasted beef and prawns in front of you, so there is no time to enjoy the environment, just eat the stuffy head.

Wooden Charcoal Korean Village Barbecue House

The name is too long. You can call him WCKVBH for short. The name of the store is so long because the owner can't wait to tell you a proud message: we are really using charcoal for barbecue! Another reason why this restaurant can't be ignored is that you can still have barbecue here at 2:15 am! For meat-loving foodies, what is it to sleep ~

Brothers Restaurant

Brothers is also a restaurant that uses charcoal for barbecue. In addition to barbecue, spicy squid must also be a special feature. Here, there is not only the smell of charcoal grilled by dripping fat and charcoal, but also the thick meaty smell in the air, as well as the scorch flavor. I think of it as covetous ~ It ’s just that the charcoal grilled meat tastes too heavy, even after leaving for a long time, Others can easily guess that you just ate barbecue.

All That Barbecue

All That Barbecue is my first choice for Korean barbecue self-meeting with friends. The taste is good, not many people, even in the peak period, the waiting time is reasonable. In addition to the traditional Korean barbecue, Honey Rice Cake is especially recommended.

To Bang

This is a family-style Korean barbecue restaurant with a la carte and petty price. Suitable for Korean side dishes, do not want to eat too much meat, but also want to experience the food in the barbecue process ~ to be honest, Beef Slices, pork belly, Seafood Pancake, I have eaten all but not impressed, but Made in Front of You Kimchi Fried Rice is really delicious and can't stop, I highly recommend everyone to try it!

Chungdam is definitely an upscale Korean restaurant that accepts positioning. Here are the waiters who help with the barbecue. Because of the added cost, the BBQ is not cheap, but the food is really fresh and the portion size is not small. If you are not very hungry, it is enough for three people to order two pieces of meat. Kalbi is especially recommended.

Han Sung BBQ

Eat Han Sung's charcoal barbecue at the "site" of Levi's Stadium! The tender, sautéed beef (Bulgogi) is so addictive. Slightly sweet, oily beef gut is also a must-see! The service of eating and grilling is super in place too! By the way, its Lunch Special also has a lot of choices, and there is another good place for lunch ~

Hwasot Firepot BBQ

Mainly live seafood. Although you can ask the staff to help you grill, but you can do it yourself during the busy hours. You can enjoy the fun of “do it yourself, get plenty of food”. There are all kinds of seafood in lol ~ popular seafood set. On the rack, the juice exuded during the meat roasting process will also be retained on the shell, and the nutrients are retained and the taste is very fresh!

Jang Su Jang

Jang Su Jang is a restaurant that combines all Korean delicacies. The recommended barbecue series this time, whether it is marinated roast beef or original grilled beef tongue, can make your index finger move. In general, the environment is clean and elegant, without the smoky, hot atmosphere that is common in barbecue restaurants. It is simply Michelin in the barbecue industry! By the way, Wang Mandoo Dumpling and Yukhae are also specials and worth trying.

Gen Korean BBQ House

From Nanca, the expanding Gen, sucks countless powders of authentic Korean barbecue. As many as 30 kinds of meat cured in different ways, it is a paradise for meat eaters. Red Wine Pork Belly is especially recommended. Spicy rice cake and macaron ice cream are also its specialties. In addition to quality food, Gen's unique Orchid lighting decoration is also amazing. About a few friends, drinking beer and grilling meat, think about whether they have appetite ~

Q Pot Korean BBQ & Hot Pot

Another one is in Nanwan, all you can eat Korean barbecue + hot pot! Q Pot uses a tall tablet to place an order directly, just select the desired dish. The waiter saved a la carte time and other services were in place. The decoration environment here is very unique, coupled with a variety of meats of good quality, so it is extremely hot, and you must prepare for a line for about two hours on weekends.

K-Town BBQ

Although the shop name has BBQ, it seems that BBQ is not the main focus here. There are relatively few meat choices, but fortunately the flavor makes up for this. In addition to ordering food, it has the BBQ's All You Can Eat Menu. Different meat choices will have different prices, and the final checkout will be based on the highest price per person, which is not suitable for a party with many people.

Ohgane Korean Restaurant

In addition to the traditional grilled meat on the shelf, Ohgane Korean also has the increasingly popular stone grilling. It is especially recommended for its grilled beef ribs Galbee The Original, which has been marinated for more than 72 hours.For girls who are losing weight and don’t want to eat too much barbecue, the store also provides a half & half package. You can choose half a barbecue and half a fried vermicelli or tofu soup, which is very intimate~

Gogi Time

Gogi Time is definitely a Korean barbecue that is worth a day of hungry, and a Chinese hot pot is worth a try. Unlimited Korean barbecues are reasonably priced and are available in charcoal or gas stove. Charcoal is recommended. In addition to the common grilled meat varieties, there are options for lunch meats, and premium steak meats. However, parking here is very inconvenient, and because of its location in Oakland, it is recommended that foodies do not leave valuables in the car while enjoying their food.

Bowl'd BBQ

Bowl'd BBQ and Bowl'd Korean Rice Bar, which specializes in bibimbap, are well-known sister restaurants. In addition to clean and healthy Korean barbecue, Bowl'd BBQ also has a variety of Korean cuisine. Although it ’s a bit regretful that it ’s not the grilled by yourself, but Over the Grill Cooked in Kitchen, the Oakland branch has a slightly special Hot Stone Grill, which grills meat on a large stone slab to reduce oil fume while helping to keep the meat delicious The gravy, even the grilled salmon, which is easy to over-dried, can be grilled fresh and juicy.
