Gambit and I were invited to go to Korean BBQ last Thursday night with a group of his work colleagues.
His work colleague chose Don’s Bogum – 17 E 32nd St. New York, NY 10016.
The place was very stylishly decorated with a bar at the front, dining tables on the left and the BBQ area down at the back to the right.
I’m not completely educated with Korean cuisine so luckily Gambit’s colleague was Korean and was able to order everything for us.
So to admit exactly what we ate that night, I couldn’t say, however I was told that the beef which was ordered was the most traditional type of meat usually ordered.
We then had a second round of beef which was marinated in a spicy marinade.
We also had a few orders of Bibimbap which we ate with the meat.
In addition to my Korean Ginger Ale I was able to try Bek Se Ju which was really nice. It tasted like a sweet wine which I like.
Everything was delicious. The BBQ meat was so tasty and tender and of excellent quality compared to the other Korean BBQs I’ve been to.
As it wasn’t a cheap dining experience we wouldn’t be returning anytime soon but when we do go Korean BBQ again I would definitely want to return to Don’s Bogum.
