Las Vegas: Noodles and More at Ginseng Korean BBQ Restaurant

We were going to head to Chinatown in Las Vegas (or Pan-Asian Town as my friends and I dubbed it recently) but we were on the strip and I spotted a sign for Korean BBQ. We reasoned it couldn’t be that bad as we were cooking everything ourselves.

First the banchan selection is quite excellent. Lots of kimchi, the usual cucumbers, fish cake, radish, bean sprouts and my fave, jelly.

The grill is smaller than I’m used and gets quite hot. We ordered a bunch of meats but told our server we wanted smaller portions. It worked out very well.

We did get hungry while waiting for our food to cook so we ended up getting noodles. The japchae was full of meat!

Eventually we left so full, we had to get another drink or two to help us digest! Ginseng turned out to be a good find. And I liked it better than Kimchi which is also on the Strip. Kimchi is very large and probably a little bit cleaner (you get to load up your own banchan at their bar) but Ginseng feels like the homey places I like in Koreatown in Los Angeles.
