Don’t let the sushi name fool ya! – it’s Korean grub!
What is more fun than sitting around a table of fiery flames grilling your own meat? I mean, seriously….not much. Knowing our love for culinary adventures, Kelvin found Shilla Korean Restaurant that offers a Korean BBQ table that you get to man yourself!
Our Mangia Memoir (what we’ll remember):
Driving our asses to Doral in the rain was well worth it for this meaty treat! Dan and his bf Andrew, Vince, Kelvin and Adam and I went back to our caveman roots, conquered fire and grilled our own meats. So much fun! (Aside from being worried about cross-contamination of chicken juice into the beef and pork). Did we mention they have Karaoke with a full band?!? When we asked our waitress when they have karaoke, her response was “Karaoke? Oh we have Karaoke any time. You want to Karaoke?”. Dreams really do come true. Unfortunately, our crew was ill-prepared, but we WILL be back to dominate!
- 5 out of 5 stars
- FOOD: awesome. We got the Korean BBQ table and a Dolsot Bibimbab (traditional Korean dish). The meat was seasoned well and our caveman instincts allowed us to cook the meat to perfection.
- SERVICE: our waitress was the bomb. She was prompt, made great recommendations and had an awesome sense of humor. We loved her. Wish we took her name, so we could give her a “shout out”.
- AMBIANCE: has a very laid back, cafe feel. Not pretentious at all. The decor is Asian themed, but there is sports paraphernalia in the bathrooms, remnant of probably a former sports bar. Definitely gave it some character!
The BBQ table is meant to be shared, so we ordered a bunch of meat items and got grilled, forking out meat onto each other’s plates as it was finished.
- Bibimbab: stone pot creation with fresh vegetables, rice, meat and a fried egg on top. Very delicious and our waitress was kind enough to mix it all together for us table-side.
- Korean BBQ items:
- Daiji Bulgoki: shredded marinated pork
- Bulgoki: shredded marinated beef
- Another Beef Dish which happened to be our favorite!! I wish we remembered the name.
- Dak Gui: marinated chicken
- Fried Dumplings
- Complimentary Sides – include a lot of veggies, like kimchi, marinated mushrooms, sprouts, broccoli, etc.
