First there was sushi, and then there was hibachi, and then there was Indian food, gastropubs and mixology bars. Now, the new hottest place to go on a first date is Korean BBQ. Yup, pretty much. Every Korean BBQ house is jammed packed, and full and it seems there is one on every corner now. Here are some of the pros and cons to going to Korean BBQ on a first date. And, for those of you in committed relationships, it's a great new experience to add to your go-to date places.
You get all you can eat meat. So for those gym bros who are bulking or meat lovers, this is a great place to go.
It is semi healthy.
They usually are quite intimate, as you cook the food yourself, the experience is intimate. If you haven't ever done it before, it is a great experience for the two of you to share.
Unfortunately, Korean food is loaded with garlic, so make sure you bring mints or gum for after.
Kimchi comes out of your pores when sweating, so if you plan on having sex that night, fair warning- garlic smells might appear.
It can be very casual or very dressed up depending on the restaurant; most of the places I go to are fairly on the upscale side.
Don't know what to order?
Galbi or Kalbi is Korean short rib. Cook it till the marinade carmelizes.
Bulgogi is korean beef, you just throw it on in a pile and let it cook in the juices.
Kimchi _anything_ is fermented veggies.
Chadol is beef brisket that cooks very fast.
Chop Chae is Korean glass noodles served either warm or cold with veggies.
There are tons of other great options including seafood.
