Originally from Sinchon, Seoul with over 60 years of experience Seo Seo Galbi (서서 갈비) is now open in Jakarta at Pantai Indah Kapuk (PIK) area serving Korean BBQ and dishes.
Seo Seo Galbi is located precisely next to Shirokuma PIK, as the name suggests, Korean BBQ is their specialty, you can find various beef and pork bbq as well as various Korean dishes from noodle, rice, soup, etc with price ranging from IDR 49k to IDR 275k for the food.
Upon ordering, side dishes or banchan will be served, AnakJajan personally love the great variety of side dishes. The marinated green chili was sooo good!!
For BBQ, Grilled egg, cheese and Seo Seo Galbi special sauce are served on the grill as companion for the meat. Besides the normal ssamjang sauce and salt with sesame oil, what makes the BBQ sensation in Seo Seo Galbi different is their special sauce, it’s garlicky and savory with subtle sweet taste, major love!!
Seo Seo Gal Bi IDR 195k (250gr) // Seo Seo Saeng Gal Bi IDR 245k (220gr)
Seo Seo Galbi uses imported premium meat from US and to defrost the meat they use special Seol Bing Go machine with reverse osmosis water to make the meat tender naturally while keeping it fresh, that explains the succulent juicy tender texture.
Gal Bi or beef short ribs (bone-in) BBQ is available in two options, Seo Seo Gal Bi (special seasoned version) or Seo Seo Saeng Gal Bi (fresh version). Both were seriously soooo good!! The texture of meat was very impressive, cooked nicely over charcoal grill, it won’t take much effort to chew since the meat was succulent juicy, tender and full of flavors.
The marinated version is surely our favorite, already sooo good by itself, it tastes even better when dipped into Seo Seo Galbi special sauce. Massiseoyo!!
Bu Dae Jji Gae IDR 179k (Medium)/ IDR 259k (Large)
If you’re up for something soupy, their Budae Jjigae or Korean stew is also pleasant to try with generous toppings, ham, sausage, samgyeopsal or pork belly, vegetables, kimchi, onion, tteok or rice cake, ramyeon noodle, and mandu or Korean dumplings.
Sun Du Bu Jji Gae IDR 75k
Sundubu jjigae is a spicy soft tofu stew dish and AnakJajan were very happy with this particular dish during our visit. It’s rich enough, flavorful, and savory with just the right level of spiciness, tofu was also very soft and smooth, me likey!
Jap Chae IDR 89k // Ramyeon, Tteokbokki, Gimbap IDR 119k + Cheese IDR 30k
Other Korean dishes like Jap Chae or stir fried glass noodle with meat and vegetables, Ramyeon noodle, Tteokbokki, Gimbap, etc are also available here.
Saeng Sam Gyep Sal IDR 85k (180gr)
Gotta love the fresh pork belly here!! It was thick, tender and pleasantly delicious.
Specially for the grilled pork belly, they provide this special soy bean flour as a condiment and it was sooo good!! Simply dip the grilled pork belly into salt and sesame oil, then dip it into soy bean flour to get the special unique taste.
The soy bean flour simply brings the grilled pork belly game into another level, it gives the meat this special richness and sweetness, highly recommended!
Seo Seo Gal Mae Gi Sal IDR 85k (185gr)
Here in Seo Seo Galbi, you can also find the special seasoned pork skirt meat, our favorite part of pork at Korean BBQ. The meat was incredibly tender with all of the seasoning fully absorbed into it and nice caramelization on the outside, sooo good!
Overall, Seo Seo Galbi has everything we expect from a Korean BBQ restaurant, amazing meat, great flavors and reasonably priced as well. From our experience, AnakJajan personally think that their Korean BBQ is one of the best in town, we highly recommend the Seo Seo Gal Bi and Seo Seo Gal Mae Gi Sal.
