How to Order at a K-BBQ Restaurant


We all know that famous cliché: You are what you eat. Well then, to be Korean you must eat some K-BBQ (Korean barbeque)! If you’re vegetarian savor some bibimbap instead. But for you carnivores out there, this week’s episode 58 of KWOW will prepare you for the next grill-rific outing:

The next time you go K-BBQ’ing, impress your waiter. Show off your Korean skills by using the following phrases:

Excuse me! (formal)
저기요!
Juhgiyo!

Please give us/me a menu. (formal)
메뉴 주세요.
Mehnyu joosehyo.

Please give us/me the English menu. (formal)
영어 메뉴 주세요.
Younguh mehnyu joosehyo.

Please give me/us _____. (formal)
_____ 주세요.
_____ joosehyo.

It’s delicious! (informal)
맛있다!
Masheetdah!

It’s delicious! (formal)
맛있어요!
Masheessuhyo!


For the full list of meats you can order, check out at the menu from Hyungmin’s restaurant below. Pop it up on your latest smart-phone/gadget and use it as a reference. Or you can print it out, circle the meats you want to try and show it to the waiter. Note: names of meat may slightly vary upon each restaurant.
