With so any Korean restaurants in Senopati street, another new Korean BBQ eatery is the last thing you expected to see. But nothing is stopping my curiosity to visit the new Mapogalmaegi Magal BBQ Senopati. Their first branch in PIK is quite famous and like many other popular eateries there, the waiting line can be long. The Senopati restaurant is big with typical K-Restaurant setting with eye catching sign lights on the booth seats. There wasn’t any line when I got there and the place wasn’t too busy.

I was disappointed to only get small varieties of banchan/Korean side dishes. Five dishes of Kimchi, salad, potato salad, bean sprouts and water kimchi. They are pretty good though.

So I ordered some other side dishes:

Japchae (IDR 89.800): Stir fried potato noodle with assorted vegetables. Very peppery, bland taste, not very good japchae.

Haemul Pajeon

Haemul Pajeon (IDR 98.000): Korean style seafood pancake. Large portion, seasoned,  cooked nicely,with lots of chunky seafood.

Originated from South Korea, this restaurant has hundreds of outlets all around the world. Specialized in Galmaegi (BBQ meat) they have wide range of authentic Korean dishes, most of them are familiar to me. The in-house special is the inclusion of egg cooking with the BBQ meat on the same grill. The circle BBQ pan has a special rim for the egg, so the meat is cooked together with the egg. I’ll admit it’s entertaining and gimmicky at the same time.

Mapo Galmaegi (IDR 98.800): Lean pork skirt-meat, quite flavorful.

Kkotsal Jumulleok (IDR 288.800): Marinated boneless beef short rib. Love the bold taste of the sauce. Good quality of beef.

My verdict on Mapogalmaegi Magal BBQ is just average with fun surroundings. Great spot for families with big meat eaters. If you haven’t try it, it’s worth to check out, even just to see what all the hype is about.
