Wang Cho Korean BBQ in Riverside Plaza is Now Open

Wang Cho Korean BBQ - Riverside

Although I have only eaten at Korean BBQ restaurants a few times, I have been anxiously waiting for the new Wang Cho Korean BBQ in Riverside Plaza to open.

We showed up for opening day last Friday, but management wasn’t able to open the restaurant for lunch due to a power outage.

We went back today.

There is another Wang Cho Korean BBQ in Chino Hills, but we have never eaten there. Since this was our first time, we weren’t quite sure what to expect. The manager and servers were very helpful, and steered us toward the all-you-can-eat lunch special.

If you have never eaten at a Korean BBQ restaurant or have only eaten at a quick serve restaurant in the mall, you might wonder what this silver thing is for. I’ll get back to that.

The all-you-can-eat lunch special allows you to order four meats at one time. We chose the Angus Beef Brisket, Marinated Boneless Beef, Curry Chicken and Fire Cheese Chicken.

If the meat looks raw, you are correct.

All of the meat is brought to your table uncooked.

Don’t eat the raw meat.

Cook it. At your table. That silver thing in the middle of your table is your own personal grill.

If you’re not sure how to cook something, just ask the servers for assistance. They will even switch out the grill when it gets too charred.

Here are a few of the finished products.

Since it was all-you-can-eat, we asked for more meat (actually, “I” am the one who asked since my wife was done). This time we added Sliced Beef Bulgogi, Spicy Red Pork Belly, Assorted Vegetables & Mushrooms and some more Angus Beef Brisket.

      The lunch menu (pictured) includes tofu, soybean, rice and vegetable options. I’m not a vegetarian, so I can’t confirm that these are true vegetarian options. There might be more options on the full menus.
