Do you like meat or Korean Movie stars or how bout both then Kang Hodong Baekjeong is the spot. Rumor has it that the name is after a famous Korean Celebrity. They say he's laying low due to some scandal. Maybe he's hiding out in the restaurant! Lets find out! Ha Ha!
Was turned on to this place by a friend and would love to experience it with you all. The reviews are looking good for the place and place is really packed on the weekends a good sign. Just loving the reviews.
“My eyes were gleaming and my nostrils were flaring with joy. I could have cried out of happiness, haha. Instead, I sat down and helped put meat on the grill...while salivating...trying not to look like I cared so darn much about all this glorious meat.” By an Elite Yelp reviewer in Irvine, CA
Keep on hearing about the good service, “Service was outstanding and our waiter was almost overly apologetic.
Us: "thank you"
Him: "No no no, I'm so sorry that I didn't get it out sooner"
Us: ..... “ By another Elite reviewer on yelp
spot seems to have a nice casual ambiance and bustling with life, I like that about Korean BBQ, its about enjoying and loving life right? “The quality of meat was pretty good. The place is loud and bustling...great ambiance for Korean BBQ.” by another elite reviewer.
“Service was very good. Aunty(ajumma) made sure we were cooking all meat right way. All staff kept checking table constantly. (They changed grill five times!)
Good food, good service. What else could I ask more!” by another Yelp reviewer
“The pork belly and pork butt were awesome. Good quality, generous portions. We even cooked the pieces a bit crispier than usual and it was still juicy and soft. It was fantastic with the injeolmi ddeok powder or konggaru (?). “ by Yelp reviewer
“ Their appetizers where all good. I specially liked the scrambled egg, which was cooked in the side of the grill. I also like that they have different "Grill" for different kind of beef cuts. “
Prices seemed reasonable based on what you get, “We ordered the pork combo ($40) and it came with:
Pork neck, Pork butt, marinated short ribs OR marinated thinly sliced pork belly.
- I think all were good, definitely this combo is good enough for 2-3 people. “ Yelp reviewer
