Kogii Kogii | Korean BBQ in Seoul
I used to come here often when I was living south of the river. That was months ago. Didn’t realize how much I missed this place until we dropped by tonight for samgyeopsal.
Kogii Kogii (546-4244) is a fantastic restaurant. They don’t pinch on portions here. Rather than just serve standard slabs of samgyeopsal, Kogii Kogii marinates the huge square chunks of pork in all kinds of spices, and then stacks them in open bamboo shoots.
Make sure you try the rosemary, basil and/or paprika. If you’re hungry, three orders should do the trick for two people.
For three orders, two beers, doenjang jjigae and rice it came out to 43,000 KRW.
The banchan (traditional side dishes) are also great. Kimchi, lettuce, garlic, onions and ssamjang (soybean and chili paste, minced garlic and sesame oil) are all self-serve so you can go back as often as you’d like.
Getting there: Take subway Line 3 to Apgujeong Station. From exit 2 walk in the direction of Galleria Department Store. Turn right down the first street after the first intersection and walk straight until you see Prince Hotel. Kogii Kogii is just to your right.
