My first experience ever with Korean BBQ was at Seoul House. This place has been around for more than 15 years, but whenever I drive by, it always seems empty so I have no idea how it manages to stay open. It was pretty good when I first went (back in highschool), but then again, I didn't really have much experience with Korean food. I got a chance to visit Seoul House recently, and I'm sorry to say it didn't live up to my memories of the place. The food here was ok, but not spectacular.
I know all the food looks very pretty in the pictures, but it all looks alot better than it tasted. From my experience, Korean food generally isn't very bland compared to what I had this particular visit. The sauces were all very bland and didn't have the usual kick. I dunno, maybe it was just me and I had a cold or something. I didn't even run have stomach pains after or have to the washroom with ring-of-fire so the food wasn't very spicy overall.
The service was good though, our hostess was very energetic and made us feel at home. It all felt very "at home", like we were visiting an aunt's house or something. I may give it a try again sometime.
