Mikey, for your information, BBQ Short Ribs aren't really the same as KALBI. It's very similar and it tastes the same, but don't let those people trick you! If you want some REAL good Kalbi, go to a Korean Market and buy the marinated one! One good store is called "Asii Market". They sell the best Kalbi you'll ever taste!!
Well, aYsHuN, since you're a real Korean (and I'm just a Korean wannabe) I'll take your word on this.
Guess now I'll have to make a return trip to Koreatown and get some of that ready-to-grill Kalbi, huh? Mmmmm, I can almost taste it!
Is Kalbi in the beef, pork, lamb, or poultry category?
Because I am having some health problems, I have been eliminating most meats from my diet. I do eat fish. I have not eaten any beef for 22 years. I was eating mostly chicken, turkey, and fish for the last 22 years. Over the last 2-3 months, I have eliminated chicken totally from my diet. Have eaten small amounts of turkey, but mostly fish.
I am interested in trying Kalbi, but if it is beef I would be afraid to since I have not eaten any beef in so long.
I will have to see if there are any Korean markets in Delaware, which is where I live. If there isn't any, I am only 35 minutes from Philadelphia, PA. There probably are Korean restaurants, and possibly Korean markets in Phila.
Take Care.. Yellow Handkerchief is on here in 20 minutes, so I have to say good-bye for now. I think it is episode #164 tonight. I am sad, and don't want it to end!!!!!!!
Hahaha!!! I was just browsing this forum to find out what was going to happen next on YH when I found this thread.
Jean - Galbi is traditionally beef. There are a few restaurants where I live which serve variants like Ddak Galbi (Chicken Galbi) but they're not the "true" Galbi.
aYsHuN - BBQ Short Rib is indeed the American name mainly used to describe Galbi - at least here on the East Coast. I have designed/written menus for Korean restaurants (inlcuding my aunt's) and this is the term we used.
There's this great restaurant in my area that does it awesome!!! They have the portable gas grill type of cookers (with the ring/moat around the edge) and they put a sauce type liquid in the ring which they use to baste the meat with!!! Kind of unique to this restaurant but mmm mmm mmm oh so good. But Galbi is everywhere here in Northern Virginia/Metro DC so there are all sorts of different styles and types. There's a restaurant called Soo Won Galbi 3 minutes from my condo that has good stuff.
BUT the BEST Galbi is the one that my mom makes!!! Yum yum! ;D
;D i've had kalbi before made by someone who was selling it in korea town in chicago. well, it's not really korea town, just plenty of korean stores. well, it is like Ashun said. and be sure not to get ripped off on the price. they make it costly when you're unable to communicate w/them.
I should've been more polite and introduced myself first. Thanks for the warm welcome Mikey!
Soju - yup I live in Northern Virginia (NoVA) about 15 miles outside of DC. There's a huge (well not as big as LA or NY but pretty darn big) Korean population here in the DC metro area. We have several cable channels that have Korean TV and one that is Korean 24/7. That's the channel that shows YH. I've been so eager to find out what happens that I decided to spoil the show and come to this forum looking for answers.
I missed last night's episode so I don't know what happened (I'll have to ask my mom - I go to her house to watch the show cause I don't get that channel) but the night before was the episode where Sang-min's dad offers Ja-young money if she gave up Ji-min and "started fresh". Can anyone fill me in to the episode after that one? I'll miss tonight's as well so please add that one too.
It's kind of interesting to see the English subtitles to the show and see how they are translating things. It is definitely not a literal translation but close enough I guess.
Hi Mickey, I'm a mid aged Korean man who lives in orange county for 20 years. I read your experience of the Korean restaurant in Gardengrov. You said that you went to "Morangak" in Garden Grove. It is a good restaurant. However, it is not the right "Kalbi" restaurant. They are specialized in "Nangmyon" which is cold noodle. If you want to experience the right "Kalbi" place, I will show you the one. Please let me know
Hi Mickey from Hemet, Riverside Hi crichards from Pittsburg,
I'm sure that you guys can get "Kalbi"restaurant nearby. You can also buy all marinated and seasoned Kalbi or fresh Kalbi from Korean market. Let me know if you need my help. I just registered to this fan club. Let's see if you can click and send me an email. I open up my email addr. so that I can receive emails.
Hi dkc, and welcome to the board as well! I don’t get to Orange County all that often any more, but I’ll keep your offer in mind!
I hope you’ll check in at the other forums now and then, and give us your spin on the dramas you might be watching. It’s always interesting to hear how a Korean person can see things a little differently than do us native-born Americans!
Hi everybody Its ShoNuff chicago,(lost password cookie)
Since I posed the question awhile back, I had Galbi..ooh is it good. I had it homemade once and from the great china buffet in linconwood(across from the mall). In chicago they have lots of korean markets but the trick is in the maranade time, I forgot what my friend used but she did soak the meat for a day in a ziplock bag. I cant cook anything more complicated than ramen so it looked pretty complicated to me but i think its not too bad. It is a bit expensive but just a tip, there is a perfect little korean restraunt in hyde park on 55th next to the metra viaduct half a block east of Lake Park. i forgot the name but i will try to get back to the place to get a card. The place should be on Check Please(chicago area review show) ;D

OHOHOHOH! Thanks, Shonuff. That's near where I live now. I'll look it up. (Maybe you should keep a notebook of online passwords. That's what I have to do--my mom always said, if I didn't have my head attached, I'd forget it.... ;D) (Cookie. Cake. Pie. It's all good.)
