5. Yang Good Korean BBQ

Dining in Yang Good Korean BBQ should be included in your list of things to do in Seoul. Located near Yeoksam Station, this restaurant is probably the best place to go for authentic Korean BBQ. The restaurant welcomes people from all over the world who want to try the marinated BBQ lamb. But, what Korean dining experience is complete without the traditional lettuce + meat + kimchi combination?

The restaurant serves halal lamb meat imported from Australia, and, surprisingly, it doesn’t give off the “lamb smell” that normally throws people off. Also, the lamb is known for being really tender and juicy. There are different sets of meat that you can BBQ, namely, the lamb rack, the marinated lamb, and the skewered lamb. The marinated lamb is the restaurant’s best seller.
