I really enjoy introducing people to new foods. As long as they are curious enough to try, I'm willing to show them. On this chilly night, a few friends, Mr. M&P, and I drove over to the Picnic Garden in Edison, NJ. There we enjoyed in the delights of all you can eat Korean barbecue dinner for about $30+ per person. That includes a buffet of meats and seafood for the grill and a variety of cooked appetizers, rice, soups, and ice cream. It also includes traditional banchan like tofu, kimchi, pickled cucumbers, etc. It's really a great deal. And what's best is that they have these huge vents above every grill allowing the smoke and odors quickly get sucked up instead of into your clothes. Oh and have I mentioned it's BYOB? Oh yeah, bring your own booze. Does that sound enticing enough for you?
And now onto the grill. We started with some pork belly and some other pork and chicken. You can choose to grill yourself but the wait staff will come around and cook food for you. And they'll even switch out the grills when it becomes too crusted up. People may think that their silent nature and not looking into your eyes may seem not friendly but they forget that it's not in some people's cultures to provide that kind of service. It's actually considered better service when you're not disturbing people's meal and just do their work. I'm just saying to keep your mind open about these kind of cultural differences when you're speaking of service.
