The Skinny: Moodaepo 2 is another gas powered All You Can Eat Korean BBQ restaurant found in Ktown. There are two no-limit combos to choose from on the menu. Combination A has both seafood and barnyard animals for just 19.99. Then for only 16.99, you can get combo B which just has the pork, beef, and chicken.
What makes Moodaepo 2 different from other Korean BBQ All You Can Eat places, is the night club atmosphere. There are flat screen television sets everywhere with Kpop music videos playing on all of them. If someone is celebrating their birthday there, the whole restaurant dims out the lights and plays a happy jingle for that special person.
The Good: It was cheap and the meat seemed to be good quality. With a group of 10 people, we ordered probably more than 20 servings of Seasoned Sirloin, Pork Belly, Pork Neck Meat, Small and large Intestines , Brisket, and Beef Rib Meat. The Pork Belly was thick and succulent while the Rib Meat were tender and juicy.
The Bad: The food was good, because it wasn’t great. While the side dishes were minimal and the service suffered because of the packed house of hungry customers, the only thing I really dislike about Moodaepo is the Korean night club atmosphere. It felt cheesy and made my dining experience feel like I was eating in a crowded metro bus since I was elbow to elbow with my fellow diners.
Would you come back again? Not if I had a choice, I’m just not a fan of All You Can Eat Korean BBQ places. I prefer restaurants like ChoSun Galbee on Olympic, their quality over quantity menu, and the outdoor seating area they have.
