Meat is seasoned and barbecued before your eyes at this fantastic and affordable Korean restaurant.
This popular Korean canteen fits right in on Rue Saint-Anne, the place to visit for aficionados of Asian cooking. Specialising in barbecue-cooked food, tantalising aromas waft all around the room, so once you’re through the door, there’s no chance you’ll leave.
The menu proposes a wide selection of grilled meats (roughly €15 per head), which include chicken, beef and duck. The waiters are highly efficient, setting up a grill on the table before slathering it with a variety of condiments and laying down the meat. An affable chef will then ask for any requests you may have, and if you’re feeling adventurous, you can ask to cook it yourself. The seasoning (an exquisite blend of Asian sauces and spices) really brings out the taste of the meat, which is then placed on a bed of noodles. The fact you get to see the food prepared before your eyes only makes the meal the more enjoyable.
Admittedly, the meat is the main draw here, but other, less hands-on mains include ragouts, pasta and traditionally cooked fish dishes like braised monkfish in a spicy sauce or a slightly more unusual jellyfish salad. If you have any space left after, you can choose from a selection of desserts sourced from local épiceries, while a complementary slice of melon is offered with the bill. From start to finish, Guibine offers an incredibly memorable experience.
