Day 2: 칠백식당 that specialize in 1++ Korean beef bbq - Is it worth it? - Hongdae, Seoul

Came across 칠백식당 when researching on what to eat in Hongdae.  They claim they only sell 1++ Korean beef, which is supposingly the highest grade Korean beef.  So, we decided to give it a try.  It is near the exit 7 of Hongik University Station within the bunch of newly built hotel/park.  This area was quite deserted when I first visited Seoul.  Anyways, this restaurant is underground and the close up when they finish selling their beef of the day.  We went there around 9pm on the first night and it was closed already because their beef was sold out.  So, we went again the next day with high hope.

The restaurant is actually very small.  These are all the available seats...I think there were only 6 available tables.

They have a very simple menu that basically sell 2 things.  The beef to BBQ and the beef to eat raw.  For the BBQ beef, we are required to order per head.  We had to order 3 servings.  As for the raw beef, we can just order 1 serving.

It comes with these side dishes.

The stove uses real coal.  

This is the 3 servings of beef....very very small in my opinion.  

As for the taste, it's just so-so.  It definitely didn't wow us.  I tasted no difference than the regular angus beef I would get in supermarkets.

As for the raw beef slice...also so-so.  I don't know why people were so hyped about this place.  Both the beef for BBQ and sashimi are quite tough.  Not very marbled.  Totally don't have the buttery flavor you would expect.

Total of the bill came to 106000 won.  Definitely not worth the price, forcing us to visit Majang Market again the next day to satisfy our beef hunger.
