Nobizib Korean BBQ, A Celebrity Hunt In Seoul

Day 1 (continued):
Nobizib is a specialty restaurant featuring Karubi (marinated grilled beef ribs) in Seoul, Korea. A combination of the restaurant’s own special sauce, pure bronze gridiron, & oak tree charcoal creates a unique taste loved by visitors.

I was told that Nobizib is a celebrity hunt. This Karubi Korean restaurant has a homely atmosphere, & is conveniently located in Myeong-dong.

As you may already know, Korean cuisine offers a huge serving of appetizers. Over at this restaurant, we got 9 starters, with a bowl of porridge each. I love porridge, be in Thai, Chinese or Japanese. However, I don’t quite like the porridge in Korea as I found it too starchy, probably due to the type of rice they use.
I had fun watching the servers preparing the Korean BBQ. After she had placed the raw meat on the charcoal grill, she pushed a button on this metallic gadget & the tool extended all the way down from the “ceiling”. It looked somewhat like a vaccum, sucking up the smoke.

The Roast Sirloin, 130g @ 45,000KRW, is a special grilled unfrozen Premium Beef Sirloin. Done medium-well, the beef is tender & juicy. 

Karubi, 300g @ 39,000KRW, is grilled beef ribs marinated in soy sauce.

Though succulent, the marinade is a little too sweet & rich for my liking. But the meat tasted better when wrapped in lettuce, not too over-powering.

Bulgogi, 150g @ 22,000KRW, a grilled beef marinated in soy sauce in hot pot.

The Bulgogi is cooked with Enoki & it goes well with a bowl of rice. What I like about the small, cosy restaurant is that you don’t have to lift a finger to do anything; the BBQ is all done by the staff. You just sit, watch & eat.

  3. Shirley, I love Karubi. I first tasted Karubi when I visited my Korean friend many years ago. She even taught me how to prepare Karubi and kimchi at home. Thanks for showing us the place you'd visited.

  7. lol too bad you don't like kimchi - must be the strong flavour and smell right? I love kimchi and Korean bbq too. If only the Korean bbq restaurants here provide the same service of grilling for the customer - cook all week long, until I am so lazy once I go out. No DIY cooking for me ;)

  9. They offer only Beef instead of offer other types of meat? The grilled beef seems delicious, but sadly, I don't eat beef.
