“#KoreanFoodChallenge First Timer ever in Korean BBQ place? Dont' know how to grill pork belly properly as it should in Korean dramas? Grill masters in Yukjun Sikdang sear your pork for superior taste and convenience. Ever since it was appeared in a famous TV show as one of the top Korean Pork Belly BBQ restaurants in Seoul 2018, this place has become extremely popular among young Koreans. For Dinner, you may have to wait for 30-45 minutes in designated waiting area. ”

“#KoreanFoodChallenge #Halal Try stir fried spicy short arm octopus. This affordable yet super delicious dish can be perfect option for seafood lovers. It is hilarious to watch servers literally give you the food right after you have a seat. lol Yes it is the sole menu of the restaurant. This place is always packed with locals during weekday dinner. It would be wiser to stop by during weekend lunch time. ”
