Korean BBQ - New Job + New Lunch Team

Mark Lim - Now that I've started working as a web designer for ACU Web I've learned that there's a right way and a wrong way to take care of your employees. When I was working at Home Depot our Managers decided to motivate us with a pizza party. First of all, Dominoes pizza is not considered a reward. It is punishment. Second of all, you need to provide your workers with ENOUGH food or you will cause mass riots. The next day after the "Pizza Party" some of the employees wrote on the boxes:

"One slice? You can keep your pizza."

My first week at ACU Web, Austin took us to an All You Can Eat Korean BBQ restaurant. Korean BBQ is pretty interesting because the Koreans have found a way to charge you money and then make you cook the food yourself.

We searched for Korean BBQ restaurants and found two in the area. We drove in search of the first place and looked at the Yelp reviews but some of them were pretty bad so we gave up looking for it and drove to the second one. After seeing how shady the second one looked we decided to keep searching for the first one.

We couldn't find it so our hunger forced us to give up and we went back to the second shady looking one.

To our surprise it was quite nice inside. Austin ended up ordering various cuts of raw meat that we slowly cooked on the grill in the center of the table. Like children we began putting other things on the grill and at one point tried to make a volcano onion thing but failed miserably.

Austin also tried to order "rice sheets" and the very nice Korean lady was very confused and looked at him like he was a crazy homeless man. Eventually, Austin was able to get his "rice paper."

Overall it was a really good place and we plan to eat their again. I totally forgot where this place is so I'm going to google it right now.
