Another one for the meat lovers out there, but you’ll have to work for it when it comes to Korean BBQ buffets.

Korean BBQ buffets serve up a wide array of meat, all marinated to varying degrees of taste. Whether you like it hot and spicy, or someone who wants a sweet and savoury taste to your meat, they have it all.

As they are slightly more affordable on the buffet range, that means you’ll need to do the cooking with the hot plates at your table. Still, preparing your own meal comes with a level of satisfaction unlike any other.

Or you could mulch off someone’s stash of cooked meat.

Now that you got a sense of what’s available out there, it’s time to read our take of these Korean BBQ buffets and decide on your meat!
