Josie had Korean barbecue cravings, so I suggested Chingu, remembering that their all-you-can-eat business included pork bone soup.
Yay to glass noodles and the fish cake thingies.
I like their pork bone soup, but Jo noted that she remembered it having more peppercorns and stuff last time. I still liked it.
I spared the pictures of the raw meat, but on the regular AYCE option we got, there was fish, pork belly, pork in red sauce, beef, short ribs, squid, and I can't remember what else. It comes with lettuce, and chopped up lettuce with spicy seasoning. You're meant to wrap meat in the lettuce and shove the seasoned lettuce in that as well. Lettuce in lettuce still seems kind of weird to me.
The deluxe AYCE menu that we didn't get included things like tofu soup, handmade dumplings, salmon, and I can't remember what else.
There's also ice cream at the end.
There's still at 15% automatic gratuity charge, but it's well deserved. Staff nonchalantly eyed us as we cooked, making sure that if the grill got too crusted up with black stuff, they would change it.
Would I return? Yes. Their marinated beef is pretty awesome and I appreciate that it comes with lettuce. I also like that they're actually Korean. I'm a fan of the pork bone soup as well. Also, chingu means friend. :D
Total damage: approximately $25. (It's cheaper than that by a few bucks on weekdays.)
