Left: Regular soup of the set meal
Right: Kimch (or you can choose mini-salad)
There are two kinds of meat on the dish. The red one is beef short ribs and the white one is beef large intestines seasoned with miso sauce.
Beef large intestines seasoned with miso sauce
When you grill the intestines, first you should grill the skin side well before grilling the fat side of the meat.
Next, grill the fat side of the meat.
When the fat changes color from white to transparent, it is ready to eat.
Because the large intestine is so chewy to eat and has a bit of a unique smell, doing this makes the meat softer. If the fat hasn't turned transparent yet, the meat may still have a slight smell.
I highly recommend changing the soup because it is good value. The amount of ingredients, such as vegetables, are much more than in the regular soup and more delicious.
When you order a non-alcoholic drink from a la carte menu or set meal which included the drink, it is self-service and free refills.
(Iced water is for free and self-service.)
