Song Do's premise is simple: Choose from one of four all-you-can-eat options, the Ruby, Silver, Gold or Diamond, all of which includes several kinds of meat. With the base package, the Ruby at $12.99 ($9.99 at lunch) at the bottom and the Diamond at the top only $24.99, the prices are a steal. Keep in mind that at most Korean barbecue joints, just one kind of meat can cost upward of $20. The quality of the banchan (side dishes) is a mixed bag depending on what you choose. The chili-laced bean sprouts tasted incredibly fresh. The chunks of daikon, however, were overmarinated and soft around the edges, like they'd been sitting around for a while. This is more of a do-it-yourself kind of operation, but that just adds to the fun. Song Do's only caveat: Everyone in your party has to order the same package.
Price: $$ ($10-$20)
