Tucked away in a Korean strip mall in Northwest Dallas, you may not know about one of the city's many hidden gems: Koryo Kalbi Korean BBQ. It’s a perfect blend of authentic and familiar, making it a unique dining experience without feeling uncomfortably foreign. That being said, it’s best enjoyed having a bit of knowledge before you head in for a fun and flavorful meal.

The wait staff is extremely friendly and happy to make recommendations, guiding you through your visit. If you’d prefer to simply order an entrée prepared in the kitchen, they have an extensive menu that includes many options. If you want the BBQ, which we think is most fun, you have to place at least two orders. That isn’t tough considering the great variety.

We started with a dumpling appetizer and were immediately wowed with flavor.

Homemade steamed beef, pork, and vegetable dumplings, served with homemade soy sauce.

After taking your order, your server will turn on your tabletop grill.

Next up: sides galore followed by the delivery of your raw meat, ready to be cooked right in front of you!

Most of the sides are cold vegetables in a marinade or sauce.

The two warm sides are bean paste soup {which tastes similar to a zesty miso soup} and steamed egg casserole.

Sliced Duck ready to be grilled.

Marinated Rib-Eye with Mushrooms and Onion

Your server will place the meat on the grill and will continue to do the work for you throughout the meal. But of course, feel free to jump in and turn the meat when you’d like.

Koryo Kalbi is a great place for a fun date night, a family gathering, or a group dinner. Regardless of the occassion,it is a fun way to experience a bit of the Korean culture right here in Dallas.

Come in on Mondays-Saturdays from 11:00am to 12:00am. Koryo Kalbi recently extended their dinner hours to accommodate customers who crave the Korean fare late into the evening. They also serve lunch from 11:00am to 3:00pm, featuring  lunch boxes {think bento box} with many options under $10. Check it out and let us know what you think!
