Palsaik Samgyeopsal

Saturday, 27 February 2016

Palsaik Samgyeopsal (팔색삼겹살) is a Korean barbeque restaurant best known for serving pork belly (samgyeopsal 삼겹살) marinated in 8 different types of sauces such as hot pepper paste, miso (or soybean) paste, curry, herbs, garlic, pine leaves, wine and ginseng. I've only been to the Sydney branch (which opened about mid last year), but we only ordered individual dishes instead of the 8 types of pork belly. However, the food was on the low to average side and we experienced the worst service ever—the waiter forgot our order and the food took over 30 minutes to arrive when the restaurant wasn't even that busy.

I found the the hot pepper paste, soybean paste, and curry ones to be the most strongest in taste, while the others were much lighter. However, I actually preferred the herbs, pine leaves, wine and ginseng ones more because they tasted less "heavy" and still retained the original flavours of the pork belly meat itself. For 38,000 won, an order of the 8 types of pork belly also came with a soup. Overall, the food and service was great (I've realised that customer service in general is much better in Korea), so we weren't disappointed at all with the whole dining experience.
