I’ll always have my perennialfavorite Korean food spots今天在匹兹堡，但是，这并不意味着我不喜欢尝试新的机会时。这就是用烧酒，位于匹兹堡的加菲猫附近一个全新的餐馆的情况。如果你想知道这个名字，烧酒是韩国的民族精神，清澈，无色烈酒。
根据匹兹堡邮公报articleI read(which is how I first learned of Soju), it took six years for the restaurateur to open it. The bulk of that time was spent rehabbing the building. It was formerly a bar with apartments above it, but from the outside it’s extremely nondescript; it looks like a an old-time storefront. The inside is decidedly modern and refreshing.
We opted for two appetizers, since they both sounded good and I didn’t want to have to choose. D always had interest in the Nori French Fries ($5) which consisted of fresh-cut fries served with seaweed seasoning and ketchup. These were good and were a huge portion, but they were still just fries (which is the main reason I wanted a more authentic appetizer).
My selection was the Mandu ($6), which are Korean-style dumplings and something I adore. These were sautéed and came with your choice of kimchee (vegetarian option) or pork. We went with the latter.
我命令我的主菜Bulgogi ($18) which is essentially grilled Korean style BBQ beef tenderloin and came with rice and bantan (the latter refers to Korean side dishes). It wasn’t spicy at all (Korean food can be prepared with a lot of spice to it) but that suited me just fine.
D selected a platter option which enabled him to try the bulgogi, kalbi (Korean style BBQ short ribs), and the dwaejibulgogi (Korean BBQ pork tenderloin). His meal also came with rice and bantan.
I absolutely adored our meal here and definitely look forward to returning again in the future. Service, food, and drinks were all great, everything you want in a memorable dining out.
