This past weekend, we enjoyed a great deal of meat dining on Korean barbeque at Hee Been in Annandale. For those of you who don't live in the DC area (or don't venture down to the suburbs), Annandale is the home of great Korean restaurants (Little River Turnpike to be exact). Sure, you can go to Woo Lae Oak in Tyson's, but come on, that's not the real deal.
If you have never had Korean BBQ, you should know that it's awesome. You select different types of meat and they cook it on a grill at your table. And then they bring all kinds of side dishes like kimchi, roasted seaweed, and pickled vegetables. When the meat is cooked, you make little Korean burritos of meat, sauces, and rice wrapped in lettuce. I am sure it's an acquired taste for some (especially the kimchi) but it is really good and everyone should try it once.
At Hee Been they have a whole buffet of sushi and Korean BBQ (among other things) but we focused on the Korean BBQ. I started off with some Miso soup and then we got to cookin'!
