Iron Age Grill Korean Restaurant
My wife had heard from co-workers that there was a Korean restaurant that offered a Korean Buffet, all you can eat. Now my wife is always looking for a bargain and most times, the places she recommended bombed with my daughter and I giving her the chop! BUT tonight after a disappoint loss being a Ravens fan against the Chargers came down to the wire with just 1 touchdown could do it. But to no avail, they lost. Meanwhile my wife and daughter are waiting to go to this bargain place. Needless to say I wasn't expecting too much. Located in Cantonsville, right off of Baltimore National Pike, I dropped off the young ladies to put our name on.
I parked the truck and met them inside. At first impression, the place is huge. Loud music designed for the Millennial generation and young adults. If you are looking to socialize, there is plenty of booths designed for about 6 people. There on the table is complimentary house salad and small dishes of a mixture of pickled turnips, shredded and sweet potato noodles. Even smaller dishes for dipping sauces.
The table is designed for the traditional Korean Barbeque. The staff was very professional and basically to indulge in the all you can eat, we must order "3 meat dishes" first. As I read the menu, customers could be penalized if there is leftovers? I can understand that the leftovers is wasted profit down the drain for an all you can eat.
We tried the Beef Bulgogi which is marinated beef and grilled at the center of the table. Very tender and tasty but a little too much sweetness. Then we order a garlic pork chop, whole shrimp, spicy cuttle fish (large squid), the condiment is sweet potato noodles with a touch of sesame oil, soy sauce, spicy rice cakes, steamed egg and kimchi and spicy turnip.
Overall, if you are interested in having fun eating and have lots of time, and enjoy the videos on large screen, then this is the place for you. Taking turns turning the meat or assisting cutting them into small pieces.
It's a lot of fun and you are actually watching your food cook in front of you!
On a scale from 1-5 for a "all you can eat" I have to give a 5 out of 5.
Try it out and have fun!
