Kogii Kogii | Korean BBQ in Seoul

October 9, 2011

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.

    Hi, I hope you don’t mind me stopping by to inform you about the government run website, Koreataste, promoting Korean food and culture. They are hosting a blogging contest right now and I thought you might be interested in participating since you already have a running blog.🙂 Your readers might be interested too. The link to the site is below.

    I have moved back to Canada, after 14 years in Korea, and I so miss going to meat restaurants. Galbi, samgyupsal and others.. Mmmm….

    The best 돼지갈비 place that I’ve been is 이대 갈비 which is a short walk away from Sogang university front gate heading towards Shinchon station (it’s on the right side of the road as you walk)
