When we walked in it wasn't too busy, the restaurant looked quite big, and all the tables were arranged in booths with a stove each for diners to cook their meat. We decided on Combo A ($35.95), which had a combination of chicken, beef, short ribs and pork. Our waiter came and installed our stove for us, he then set up our first batch of meat on the stove, but the rest was up to us.

The lightly marinated chicken and beef was very tender and juicy. We each got a small dish of something similar to a sweet soy sauce to dip the barbecue goodies. The best part was its sweetness had just the right amount, not strong enough to over power the taste of the marinating of the chicken and beef, but enough to add a new flavour.

Michael basically wolfed down everything else on the table. He especially loved the dipping sauce and said it just added a sweetness to the meats you don't usually taste. I know he liked cooking the meats himself too. The cooking plate does get a little charred during cooking, but the servers seem to be more than please to replace them when that happens.
One of the reasons Michael and I love coming to Korean barbecue restaurants is because they serve little side dishes. Dai Jang Kum did not fail. We both love the sweetened potatoes and I'd have to say the kimchi can't be beat either. Michael was really looking forward to the seaweed side dish Korean restaurants usually serve though, I guess they don't serve that at this restaurant.
We just wanted to say that we were both pleasantly surprised by the service at Dai Jang Kum, our waiter was very friendly and was quite attentive. For carnivores wanting to chow down on food that promises not to disappoint, Dai Jang Kum should definitely be a consideration.
