Richmond definitely isn’t in need of more amazing spots to eat, but it’s about to get another one.
Korean BBQ king Seorae is opening its very first North American location in the Metro Vancouver city this summer.
This wildly popular chain is known for having the number one skirt meat BBQ in Korea, AKA ‘Galmaegisal’.
Seorae describes their meat as the perfect combination of tenderness and juiciness from a part of the animal that contains a minimal amount of fat, and people go nuts for it.
“A fully-grown pig or cow produces only 250 grams of such meat. It is so good and so rare, that this meat was reserved only for the palates of monarchs and royal families,” their site reads.
Seorae was founded in South Korea in 2007 and has since expanded to have 288 locations around the world.
This spot will have a variety of protein available for BBQ including pork, beef, and chicken, and it will several kinds of Korean stews too.
Other than the BBQ, patrons at this eatery can expect to devour dishes like corn-cheese dumplings, sweet fried chicken, kimchi pancakes, seafood and green onion pancakes, ddoekbokki with noodles, and a variety of bibimbop to name a few.
Most Seorae locations offer lunch sets as well, the Richmond location will boast a set that includes black bean rice, leek bulgogi, spicy stir-fried pork, and grilled chicken.
You can find this authentic Korean charcoal BBQ restaurant at 115-5668 Hollybridge Way, where it will be “grilling soon.” They are planning to open their doors at the end of June.
