Yummy Korean BBQ, Honolulu HI
Spicy BBQ Chicken
Bi Bim Bap
Besides ramen, the Makai Food Court at Ala Moana Center also serves up delicious, fresh Korean food at the Yummy Korean BBQ stall. Their lines are always out the door as well. With a variety of cold sides on display for customers to pick from, their meats are cooked to order.
The Spicy BBQ Chicken was absolutely scrumptious. The chicken was marinated and thus very flavour. It was so tender and juicy and the BBQ sauce, with some kochujang mixed in to give it a spicy kick, was slathered on and made the dish flavourful. We got five sides, instead of four and rice, and I really enjoyed the sides. The cucumbers were crunchy, sweet, and juicy, as was the seaweed. The kimchi was decent, as were the pea tips. The cabbage with long rice was slightly sweetened and very good as well.
The Bi Bim Bap was not as extraordinary. The beef was marinated nicely and went well with the rest of the dish. I love kochujang so that was great. The bean sprouts, carrots, and other sides on the rice were decent. I just wished the egg was runnier. It needed to completely just be liquid and mix with everything else.
With yet another place checked off on our foods to eat list, and three very full stomachs, we left the food court. Though, we would be back soon, no doubt.
