Is it possible to find a place better than Meat-ing? The answer is yes. I just found out today. It is 착한돼지 (Chakhan dwaeji, which is Kind-hearted pig; and the English name of the restaurant is Chakhan pig — go figure) http://www.chakhanpig.com near Sangsu station (accessible from Hongdae, Sangsu, and Hapjeong station).
Chakhan pig has the same price as Meat-ing (9900 lunch -> 5pm), 10900 after 5pm. But you have a much wider selection of meat. And they even have fried chicken. Can you believe it? FRIED CHICKEN AT AN ALL YOU CAN IT BBQ RESTAURANT. And the fried chicken was really good, very flavorful, tender, and a tad spicy. The meat there is pretty much like Meat-ing, but slightly better — mostly because I can tell the difference between the meat apart.
Where you get stuffs:
Love the oranges:
They also have rice, spaghetti, sausages, shrimps etc. Bokkeumbab also available (rice mixed with different stuff and cheese — you put the whole box on the grill plate and wait till the cheese is melted). A cool place to stuff your face. I think that from now I will stick to it instead of Meat-ing.
