Work up a big appetite before stopping by Madangsui, a Korean barbecue hotspot in Midtown. The star here is the hands-on Korean barbecue experience. Choose your meat—marinated pork ($24.99), Korean-style short ribs ($37.99), thin-sliced brisket ($27.99) or a whole host of other options—then cook it tableside at your own personal grill. Each option comes with banchan, an assortment of small side dishes traditional in Korean cuisine. If all that food is too much for you, opt for one of the other traditional Korean dishes on the menu. Either the bulgogi bibimbap, a combination of rice, assorted vegetables and marinated beef served in a sizzling hot stone pot, or galbi tang, tender short ribs with radishes in savory beef broth (both $18.99) would make an authentic dinner. It wouldn’t be a true Korean barbecue experience without some soju ($14) or plum wine ($17) to quench your thirst.

Still one of my all-time favorite Korean BBQ places. They have the highest quality meat of the BBQ restaurants I've eaten in Ktown. So it is a bit pricier and off the beaten path but very worth it. Loved the service and the meat was just so tender, delicious, and super fresh. Recommend it for those who are feeling a little bit fancier and want a little more quality to their meal.
