Seoul Ssamm

Fortitude Valley

Seoul Ssamm is a slick, up-market Korean BBQ restaurant in located just off Fortitude Valley's M&A laneway precinct.

What makes Seoul Ssamm stand out from the crowd is its use of premium quality ingredients (think high-grade wagyu) and that everything including the sauces is handmade by chefs on site.

The same attention to quality applies to the decor, with soft suede dining chairs and curved booths, all with polished timber tables with shiny inlaid BBQs and specially-commissioned Korean street art adorning the walls.

Whilst traditional Korean BBQ (cooked individually at tables) is the prime reason for coming to Seoul Ssamm, there's also a choice of delicious small dishes such as vegetable porridge, sweet pumpkin soup, mini pork or beef cutlets, Korean style kimchi pancake or vegetable mandu (Korean-style vegetable dumplings).

But Korean BBQ is the star here and not to be missed - choose from the wagyu selection including premium wagyu cuberoll, eye roll, rib meat or tongue otherwise there's Seoul Ssamm pork belly or bulgogi beef or pork. All meat comes served with accompaniments including kimchi, special chef's sauce and lettuce leaves to cup the cooked meat and sauces in before eating taco-style.
