1. This Juicy Closeup of Kalbi

Kalbi is sooo good and this short rib kalbi from Cote, a Korean steakhouse in Manhattan, is marinated with soy, ginger and fruit juices that caramelize on the grill.

6. This Mini Octopus Cheese Fondue

Korean cheese fondue isn’t barbeque per se, but it’s not unlikely that a shareable dish like this would be on a KBBQ table. (And how could we NOT slip this one in here?)

7. This Overhead Shot Featuring Korean Pancakes

It’s also not unlikely that you’ll find a plate of Korean pancakes, often laced with scallions, kimchi and/or seafood, on a KBBQ table. Also, let’s just give dibs to anyone who’s willing to stand up in order to photograph everything on a KBBQ table in a single shot, because anyone who’s had it knows that there is no room to spare at one of these meals.

14. This Photo with a Vibe

It’s all about the #MOOD these days. The atmosphere. The vibez. Let the KBBQ make you feel some sort of way.

15. This Pornographic Gyeran-jjim

Some might say the best part of KBBQ isn’t the meat, but the banchan (all those small side dishes that come complimentary with your meal). And if this photo of a cheese- and corn-topped gyeran-jjim (steamed egg dish) doesn’t prove that, I don’t know what will.

Brb, we’ll be over here trying to handle this photo.
