We were in the mood for all you can eat Korean BBQ.
We went to Mr. BBQ in Fullerton thinking it was a weekday and there shouldn’t be a wait.
Wrong! We were hungry and didn’t want to spend an hour just waiting.
So we decided to try K3grill Korean BBQ in Brea.
Our waiter brought us a “round” of banchan, literally. ha…
Lots of options. The banchan’s flavor is slightly on the sweeter side.
They have 5 different dipping sauce.
Most of the time I just used the onion soy sauce.
I also like the salted sesame oil and chili sauce.
No idea what the other two sauces were.
The white one seemed to be some kind of mayonnaise-based sauce.
The other brown sauce tasted just salty.
Of course there’s salad to go with Korean BBQ.
As usual, we started with beef brisket.
The beef brisket was perfectly marbled. So good.
We couldn’t believe they had kalbi on their lunch menu.
In many other all you can eat Korean BBQ restaurant,
you have to upgrade to the expensive one to get kalbi.
And they don’t even serve the real kalbi.
At K3grill, they actually serve the short ribs with the 3 bones.
Well, each order comes with 2 pieces, one piece has bones, the other boneless.
The piece with bones always tastes better.
We were really happy with the short ribs.
We asked for only one piece of pork belly.
The pork belly was cut pretty thin.
It crisped up on the grill quickly.
I love the crispy “bacon” dipping in salted sesame oil.
We always get an order of steamed egg when we eat Korean BBQ.
The egg was silky and soft.
For our second round, we ordered beef belly, short ribs and baby octopus.
Dr. P wanted the baby octopus. I wasn’t that interested in it.
But it turned out to be pretty tasty.
All you can eat lunch price is only $16/person.
Dr. P also ordered a draft beer for $2. What a steal!
We were quite impressed with the food and the service at K3grill.
Also we like it that there was no wait.
We shall be back.
