Sometimes, you just can't beat Korean barbecue to hit the spot. I get cravings for Korean food every now and then, and luckily there are some very good Korean restaurants in the area. Above is perhaps one of the most well-known dishes — kalbi ribs.
The short ribs are a little different from what most Westerners see in the store — it's basically a wide, thin cut of meat connected to the short rib. It's barbecued, and then it's chopped up and served on a hot iron plate set in a heavy wooden tray. The steam comes off, wafting the savory smells upward. Mmmmm. That's what can be seen on the middle left of the pic ... it's not a smudge on the camera or an exposure issue — it's the heavenly smell of grilled beef.
On the right is an assortment of kimchi, which comes with the kalbi meal. In the top, left corner is actually chop chae — a translucent noodle dish that's muy tasty. Counter clockwise from there, spicy radish, broccoli, seaweed, bean sprout and the classic, super-hot cabbage kimchi.
Top right corner is soup. I don't go for the soup itself ... looks a little too close to dishwater, so I don't touch it. LOL. But the kimchis make perfect counterpoints to the tasty marinated meat that is the kalbi.
