Cuisine: Korean BBQ
Location: Perth CBD, Barrack St
I’m back again to visit Pslsaik Namoo but I’m here to finally try Korean BBQ. I decided to start with the bossam, a marinated pork belly, and Korean BBQ – marinated Wagyu beef brisket. It appears as if the beef doesn’t come with anything but a bunch of sides and condiments are brought out.
Surprisingly, the entree was not presented first but towards the end of the meal which made me think they forgot about the entree. That allowed me time to start eating the sides – yummy spiced kimchi, picked onions and bits of carrot, and the pickled bean sprouts.
Korean BBQ – Marinated Wagyu Beef Brisket $16.50
The BBQ had been fired up and the raw marinated beef sat there before being emptied on to the dome. They said give it about 5 minutes. The very thinly cut beef starts to change colour which gives me the opportunity to take my first bite. Take a slice of the beef and dunk it in the marinade in the bowl, add it to a seaweed salt before being dabbed in another bowl of this dark red orange sauce. Wow! What flavour! The beef is tender and refreshed by being added to the marinade. The seaweed salt is a little strong so just a touch of that, but that last sauce is amazing! Towards the end after they turn off the gas stove, the meat starts to get a bit crunchy like bacon. I guess I was supposed to turn it but it’s not overcooked nor hard and chewy. The slightly burnt crunchy sensation adds another layer of flavour to the dish. I also spooned a bit of the meat juices and marinade from the BBQ onto to the plain steamed rice for more flavour. I’m really enjoying the experience.
Bossam – Marinated Pork Belly with Vegies @ $9.50
Then it was on to the bossom which is marinated but carries a much more mellow flavour. The pork belly is really soft and tender without being mushy and has a tasty flavour, meat that melts in your mouth. The salad is really surprising. The dressing is kind of like crushed strawberries with a major hit of chilli! I don’t know what’s in it but the salad certainly lit up my lunch and had me drinking water quickly. I liked it but it was a bit too much of a kick. Really stuffed but very satisfied. I’m finding that an entree shouldn’t be ordered unless you can share your dishes with others.
Palsaik Namoo Food Review Summary
Verdict: When I was in Seoul I had my first taste of the Korean BBQ experience which is lots of fun. I’ve yet to try it here in Perth so I chose the marinated Wagyu beef brisket which comes with a bunch of sides to enjoy with the meal. After the raw meat and marinade is dumped over the gas stove, about 5 minutes later the beef is cooked. Take a piece and dunk it in the marinade, the yummy seaweed salt, and this other amazing sauce and I was enjoying this amazing taste sensation! Wow, what flavour! Along with the sides they help balance out the meatiness. I also spooned a bit of the marinade and beef juices over the plain steamed rice for additional flavour. One should keep turning the meat as it can get burnt but I ended up with some crunchy bits like bacon which added even more flavour. I also ordered an entree of marinated pork belly, bossam, which was tasty but carried a much more mellow flavour. That chilli infused dressing in the salad contained a major chilli kick and was quite interesting but had me downing down lots of water!
