Going out for Korean barbecue usually means choosing between quality meats and an unlimited AYCE experience, but at Gangnam you get the bottomless experience without compromising on taste, all in a massive industrial space that feels a lot less sterile than it sounds. Classics like bulgogi, marinated pork belly, and kalbi are some of the best versions we’ve had in town—particularly compared to other bottomless spots—but it’s the premium meats you’ll want to load up on. Especially because there’s only one price point. Order the ribeye and watch as full-sized steaks arrive for as long as you keep asking (and finishing your plate), then throw on some beef rib fingers and teriyaki chicken between bites of salad, corn cheese, and an extensive selection of banchan.

The Meats

These are some of the higher quality meats we’ve come across at Korean BBQ options in Austin, and portions are not stingy. A few of our favorites include spicy marinated pork belly, beef short ribs, and ribeye steak. Show up with a few friends so that you can work your way through more of the menu.

Banchan

Every meal comes with about half a dozen banchan options, which is more than most other AYCE options in town. And they’re tasty enough that you’ll probably ask for a few refills over the course of the meal.

Appetizers

Your dinner (or lunch) ticket includes access to about a dozen different dishes and apps—including dishes like japchae, steamed egg custard, fried mandu, and corn cheese—and you can refill them as often as you’d like. Grab some salad and corn cheese to kick off the meal, but save room for the meats. That’s what you’re paying a premium for, after all.
