Korean BBQ may appear to be nothing more than a meal, but it is so much more. First, you see the dishes in front of you, which are a kaleidoscope array of colours and flavours. Then you hear the tantalising sizzle of the meat colliding with the scorching hot grill. Our mouths are watering just thinking about it, and there’s only one spot in Chinatown we trust to satisfy our hunger: Guiga Korean BBQ!
Also known as KBBQ or Korean BBQ, is a way of grilling marinated meat slices. Before grilling the meat, marinade it in a range of seasonings such as soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, gochujang, and others. A gas or charcoal grill may be integrated straight onto the table at Korean BBQ restaurants. The experience of creating barbeque right at your table may be just as essential as the flavour of the meal in Korean cuisine.
Kimchi, vegetables, rice, pajeori, and a variety of other Korean banchan may be served alongside Korean barbeque. They are displayed in tiny bowls in the table’s centre. Korean chefs may offer banchan as a form of appetiser, then refresh it throughout the dinner so that visitors may enjoy it with the main dish, which is the Korean-style BBQ.

What’s On The Menu At Guiga Korean BBQ
Etiquettes Of Korean BBQ
Grilling the gogi (meat)
Pork is the most popular meat in Korean restaurants. Beef is also available at certain places; however, it may be pricier. To cut it into smaller pieces, you should use scissors. This speeds up the cooking process.
Flip the meat once for the finest flavour. Push it to the edge of the grill when it’s done. You can request this from the server, but if they are attentive, they will do so without prompting.
Or, in certain cases, they’ll just do it regardless of whether you want to do it yourself. Because the grill burns out regularly, remember to get it replaced on a regular basis by asking the staff.
Making ssam (a.k.a the wrapping process- the fun part!)
Place anything you want into the lettuce with chopsticks. The meat should be dipped in your preferred sauce. You may also stuff the wrap with garlic or anything else.
Hold the lettuce wrap in your hands and devour it in one mouthful. It may be a mouthful, but the explosion of flavours will make it worthwhile to take just one bite.
