Chances are, you’ve heard of Korean barbecue.
But, until you’ve tried it, you really don’t know what you’re missing!
“Koreans like pork belly…We cut them in pieces and we have a special barbecue tool,” explained Daju Choi from South Korea. “And, it’s easy to prepare so quick.”

And it comes with side dishes, one of which is fermented cabbage, also known as kimchi, another Korean staple. Korean barbecue is more than just a meal, it’s a shared experience.
“Some people would be a bit confused about the concept of Korean barbecue. They serve some raw meat over a grill and everyone just cooks their own meat,” stated Ismael Barragan, captain with the United States Air Force (USAF). “Any time I talk to my mom about it she says, ‘Well, I don’t know why you’re paying them if they’re not even going to cook the food for you.’ But I think it’s a pretty enjoyable experience.”
Normally, in the middle of the table, we prepare one gear for the barbecue in the middle of it so we can share,” Choi explained. “Sometimes we cross our arms and we have special chopsticks.”

After all of that, how does it taste?
“Korean barbecue, you have to have Korean barbecue here. It’s like no other experience,” said Tyneka Howard, master sergeant with the USAF. “Take a blood pressure pill cause it’s a lot of meat you’re gonna be taking in. But it’s great. It’s absolutely great.”
