I eat a lot. It might be obvious to some, but I really do love food. A lot of my free time is spent “eating out”, whether it’s by myself or with friends. The places that we eat out at depends on whatever were in the mood for, as well as our budget. Sometimes, it’ll be a quick trip to a Wendy’s or McDonald’s, grabbing a chocolate frosty or some French fries. Other times it’ll be a group dinner at an outback steakhouse because we’re in the mood for some steaks. But for pure enjoyment, more often than not my friends and I find ourselves eating at a Korean Barbeque restaurant called Korean Garden.

For anyone that loves meat, this is definitely the place to be, since there are a wide variety of meats available for AYCE, ranging from chicken to bulgogi. Sides and appetizers area also served in the beginning and throughout your stay, with things such as rice and kimchi. There are three different packages for AYCE that offer more selections of meat and various other things the higher the price gets. The cheapest package, called the Nevada package, offers essentials such as beef briskets and pork belly for $15.95. However, the most expensive package, called the Spring Mountain package, offers nearly double the selection of AYCE foods that the Nevada package offers for only $8 more.

For us, we just like to throw it all in there and have a free-for-all of various meats. The meats are either marinated, come with sauce, or just straight as it is, with dipping oils and sauce that you can mix along with it. With that being said, the food is just delicious! Meat quality is pretty good for a place that isn’t fine dining, and anyone that loves meat is surely to find something they like on the menu. Being that I’m still in college without a job, I usually elect to go for the cheapest package, the Nevada package, and yet, I’m still able to eat really delicious food to my heart’s content. Something that some restaurants suffer from is food portions. Often times, I’ll go to a restaurant, pay $15-$20 for food, and wishing I could have more and not being fully satisfied. This is simply not the case for Korean Garden, as I’m able to eat as much as I can. Although there is a time limit of an hour and thirty minutes, this is an ample amount of time to eat, and most times, they don’t mind if you go as much as thirty minutes over the time
