A New Restaurant in the Neighborhood

This restaurant popped up almost overnight a few weeks ago. Back in the U.S., if a building had these kind of pictures, you would assume it was a meat market. But here in Korea, this is how restaurants like to advertise how fresh their food is. A seafood restaurant will have a tank of fish right in front of the restaurant and your meal will come out of that tank. Koreans love their food fresh and you can't get any fresher than that. Personally, I don't like to see what my meal looked like in it's natural state. I don't like to see raw meat and it isn't the least bit appetizing to me but that is just me.
The restaurant is the common Korean barbecue where you sit on the floor with a grill in the center of the table. Your meat comes out raw on a plate and you place it on the grill and cook it yourself. It is delicious! The restaurant has always been packed when we walked by at night. We will have to get adventuresome and give it a try. We tend to shy away from restaurants that don't have a picture menu.

This is fascinating... I don't like seeing my food in a natural state either. Cook it well and bring it to me.

What's the point of going out if you have to cook your own food???
