BBQ Samgyupsal. It's as good as it sounds.

If Koreans and Texans combined their superior grilling powers, they'd probably get something akin to the BBQ samgyupsal at 옛골토성 in Yul-dong (about a 10 minute drive from Seoheyon).
BBQ samgyupsal is basically thick slabs of smoked pork flesh. It was mighty tasty, especially when you wrap it in some white kimchi (baek kimchi). Cyndi likens the flavor of the BBQ samgyupsal to bo-ssam. Heng and I concur.

(Correction: It doesn't really tastes like bo-ssam. It just looks like it.)

The samgyupsal has already been grilled, but you'll want warm it up on the metal grill to release all the yummy heart attack juice from within the fatty flesh.

We also had a platter of ribs, which basically tastes like ribs back home, only without all that excessive BBQ sauce.

Despite how yeolshimhae Cyndi looks, she's not a fan of BBQ samgyupsal. She prefers Classic Samgyupsal.

I, on the other had, am a big fan.

By the way, do you like the sharpness of these photos? I used Heng's new Sony A300 DSLR camera. I'm so jealous. I want a DSLR...
