Seorae 喜來稀肉 (Hong Kong, CHINA) ★★★★☆

The three musketeers have been itching to meet up for dinner since early May but were unable to come up with a date that worked for all parties. Thankfully, June has been much kinder to the three of us and finally, we managed to fix a date to come out and blow water.

Surprise, surprise, we ended up not going for Chinese food which we normally do for our gathering. Instead, we decided it was time for us to do some Korean barbecue.

All it took were 2 minutes for us to decide what to order at Seorae (喜來稀肉), one of our go-to Korean barbecue houses in the city. While we waited for our meat to arrive, it's time to get the grill ready.

Grilled beef Seorae-style ($130) - It came in its usual flower shape. This was seriously good with very nice texture and tenderness.

Just a bit of Korean barbecue sauce and some garlic chip on top before wrapping it around with a piece of lettuce. Delish~

Seorae special pork skirtmeat ($150) - Another house specialty that I really love a lot last time around. This was still pretty tender and flavorful but a little more chewy tonight. Perhaps my teeth have lost a bit of strength (無牙力).

Beef tongue marinated with Seorae soy sauce ($140) - I never go to a barbecue house without trying their beef tongue. This was pretty tasty. The balance of fat and meat was spot on.

Bibimbap in stone pot ($78) - Some "mixed rice" with mixed vegetables and beef brisket to go with all the barbecued meat.

It's normally impossible to find a table at any of the Seorae Korean grills in town unless you have an advance booking but this branch on Tang Lung Street seems to be an exception as there was a fair share of empty tables around (but it's a Monday!).
