Korean restaurants are still rare in Germany. The Bulgogi Haus specializes in one thing and one thing only, but in a terrific way: Korean Barbecue. Every table has a grill in the middle where the food is grilled. The evening starts with Mandu (Korean dumplings) as appetizers. For the first main course a plate of thinly sliced beef and pork belly pieces are offered to be grilled. This is followed by Bulgogi: Lightly marinated thinly sliced beef and duck. Bulgogi is traditionally eaten by wrapping it in salad leaves or sesame leaves together with rice and some hot sauce. This was one of the best Bulgogi I ever had. The third part of the main course is sea food: Squid and shrimp. For garlic lovers the staff is happy to bring some sliced garlic that can be roasted with the food. At the end of the meal either Aloe Vera juice or Korean plum wine is served.
For drinks Früh Kölsch, one of the better beers of Cologne is on tap, as well as bottled Korean beers. A small but well selected variety of wines is also available. Furthermore Soju can be ordered.
When it comes to side dishes, however, improvements could be made: It seems to be hard to find good Kimchi outside of Korea. The Kimchi of the Bulgogi Haus is fairly mediocre. The same holds for their Kimbap.
The staff is outstanding and very attentive.
All in all it was a very entertaining evening. The ideal place to bring (non-vegetarian) family and friends.
