Navigating new delicacies can be quite the process. When it comes to Korean BBQ, that’s something that has to be done right.
A quick guide on the Korean BBQ lingo: banchan are side dishes, soju is a type of rice wine, and it’s always better to use wooden chopsticks when it comes to the lanky noodles. Types of banchan include vegetables, kimchee, pickles, and occasionally eggplant – all meant to use their acidity as a form of balancing out the flavours of the meat.
We’ve compiled a list of the best Korean BBQ Surrey has to offer.
