Kogi BBQ

Kogi BBQ in San Diego (not to be confused with the LA food truck), is an all-you-can-eat Korean-style bbq restaurant.

The setup is similar to most other Korean bbq places, though they do offer a happy hour price and they have a slightly bigger selection of side dishes, including a very enjoyable corn cheese.

We tried it out for the first time with a group of friends, including Jinxi and S. Lucky for us, S wanted to do all the cooking, so we just sat back, watched, and ate.

There are a few set menus you can choose from and everyone in your group must choose the same one. We chose the premium set at $25.99.

In addition to ordering several rounds of meat, we also ordered a few of the included sides.

Stone Pot Egg

This is one of my favorite side dishes to order. I love that the egg is still cooking and bubbling when it reaches you. The egg was silky and flavorful.

Corn Cheese

This was my first time having corn cheese. Much like anything else covered in melted cheese, this was very tasty.  It’s a good balance of sweet and salty and we ended up ordering seconds.

I didn’t take too many photos of the meat orders because it’s just photos of raw meat. Our favorite cuts were the Prime Ribeye Steak, Prime Finger Ribs, Prime Shortrib and Beef Tongue.

Overall, we had a pretty good time here. I don’t think the meat quality is quite as good as Manna BBQ, but this is a slightly cheaper option and I do like the side dish choices. Service was pretty good as well. Our grill was changed out several times and they always brought out our re-orders promptly.
