A new way to grill

So in my plan to try and expand my Korean food palate, Miriam and I went to this restaurant downtown on Thursday night for dinner. It was so good that we went back last night, too! The menu is quite extensive, but we knew what we were looking for: grilled meat--either pork or beef would do. We tried the samgyeopsalgui, which is grilled pork. What makes this place so cool, as well as in many other Korean restaurants, is that your food is cooked right in front of you! They brought out a mini grill that sat in the center of our table, and you put the pork, onions, mushrooms, and garlic on it to cook up. Accompanying that are side dishes of soup, kimchi, pickled onions, potatoes, cabbage salad, and seaweed. You can eat the side dishes separately or put them in with your meat. Once your meat is done cooking, you pick up a fresh lettuce leaf, and load it up with the pork and side dishes. It's just like a burrito to me, but minus the flour tortilla. It is oh-so-good and tasty! Here are two pictures to help illustrate what I'm talking about:
