We had just done our Asian cuisine shopping at H Mart in Edison when we spotted this restaurant IN THE SAME SHOPPING CENTER. It was lunch time and we were hungry for some Asian food. Having seen so much about Korean food and barbecue lately on TV, we were curious and tried it.
WE were greeted by the manager very politely and asked if we were first time diners at the restaurant. Since we had never been there before, he helped us to a large booth
with a gas hibachi sunken into the center of the table. He explained that you could go up to the buffet table to get marinated meats of all kinds(all completely labeled in English),
bring them back to the table and barbecue your own meant and vegetables. Each type of meat had a different marinade/all good, some spicier than the others. Also on the buffet were regular Asian selections such as: spring rolls, breaded and fried onion rings; hot
kimchee rice and regular white rice, Korean pancakes' and several others. On the table
were placed by the waiters a plate of fresh crispy lettuce leaves for making a roll. A plate of two dipping sauces and dichon thinly sliced with thinly sliced scallions (I mean thinly)They are to be used in the rolls or how ever you are eating your meat. There were other sauces on the buffet table to use for flavoring your food. For desert there were fresh pineapple chunks and fresh watermelon chunks, some other things and a wonderful ice cream station wirth 5 flavor choices including the popular Green Tea flavor. The ice cream was self serve- you ball your own with ice cream scooper. The ice cream was particularly smooth and creamy. During our meal, the manager stopped several times to see if we needed help. The bus boys were continually removing used plates and left overs.
This idea for a restaurant is a fabulous one but there should be more of a selection
in the vegetable section and the price should be displayed before the customers eat.
MORE NOODLE SELECTIONS,TOO. It's a little expensive for lunch approx. 18:00 a piece. It was a fun experience and would be great for a large group of people - 6 or so.
