8,000 won per person
청춘부대찌개 which translate Youth Army Soup, which is meant to mean that it is a nostalgic taste from our youth.

You can add different sides for extra cost but rice and ramen is free refill!

Very simple side dishes since the soup already has different ingredients.

It wasn’t too salty and wasn’t too spicy. Just right.

엉터리생고기 🥓

All you can eat pork and doenjangjigae (된장찌개) for 11,000 won per person! The quality of meat is not too bad. This restaurant is part of a chain! There are multiple ones throughout Bundang and Seoul. Unfortunately, the one we went to, I think, is gone.

Translation (Summary):


How to Enjoy to the 100%

– Basically says that the first serving is given but the customers have to get the refills for themselves.

– When paying, you have to remember the table number.

– Do not raise the heat level to 3, the highest, because the pork will burn and set off the alarms.

– Only pork should be on the grill. For kimchi and bean sprouts, use container provided to cook.

– To prevent wasted food, only take little by little.

– Drinks and side menu should be ordered through the staff but water and such is prepared for self service.

I didn’t get to take pictures of the self-service bar but it’s well organized so you can take what you need.


연탄삼겹고추장구이 (Pork Belly on Briquette)

고추장삼겹살!
너무 맛있어요!
Who doesn’t love bacon
This is basically bacon with red pepper paste seasoning

가격은 조금 비싼거 같아요
1인분이 3개 나와요
I thought that the prices were a bit on the expensive side
One serving contains 3 pieces of meat

밖에서 먹는 느낌이였어요
It felt like we were eating outside

연탄!
This is the briquette used

주문을 하면  앞 쪽에서 불로 한번 구워줘요
불 맛이나요!
When you order, they actually cook it over fire first
This way the meat has the fire taste

테이블에서 조금만 더 익으면 먹어도 되요~
Just cook it a little more at the table and you can eat it!

원래 여기 김치국이 맛있다고 들었어요
우리가 4시즘에 가서 아직 김치국은 준비가 안 되어있어서 못 먹어 봤어요 ㅠ
I heard that the Kimchi Soup here is really good
But because we arrived at 4PM it was still cooking in the back
