DAMSO MODERN KOREAN CUISINE: ALL YOU CAN EAT SAMGYUPSAL

Share on Google Plus

My parents and I came here for Samgyupsal but we originally didn't plan to have AYCE. I actually didn't know they had a such thing but then the waitress asked us if we wanted AYCE which was $19.19 per person including AYCE Samgyupsal, soybean paste soup, rice, side dish and lettuce. It seemed not too bad as I could eat a lot although my parents barely eat.  
Side dishes included kimchi, pickled radish and onion salad with vinegary sweet sauce. Lettuce and Ssamjang (the sauce for samgyupsal) came along too. Obviously not the best side dishes but bearable.
For the first round, they gave us 6 chunks of samgyupsal and for the second round we got 4. The samgyupsal didn't taste very good as the meat part didn't have any fat marbling, but only had chunks of pure fat attached to the meat. The meat was rather dry and tough, not juicy at all. My parents didn't like it at all saying the meat quality is too low. 
I guess they enjoyed the soup more than the samgyupsal. It had some sliced beef, tofu, zucchini and mushrooms. It was pretty good. Overall, it was satisfying meal in terms of quantity but not quality. If I come back I wouldn't order AYCE samgyupsal as it seems like they have more creative modern Korean cuisine.
