All You Can Eat Lunch @ Beque Korean Grill (Kevin's Going Away Lunch)

$25.00 ish (tax+tip included) This is one of those places where you cook your own meal, which i'm not a big fan of, that is to say I normally don't go out for a meal where I have to cook my own meal.  If I'm going to have to cook I might as well go shopping and will typically make a better meal for cheaper, and much tastier!  However there are times I can be dragged along.  :D  Like a free lunch for a intern who is leaving to go back to school.   Anywho, Beque is your typical styled place, large table, cooker in the center, meat and veggies pilled around to grill on the center broiler, followed by a plethora of sauces, except this place only gives you two sauces, and they're not very impressive.  The sauces they give are salt/pepper/oil mixed, and another special dipping sauce for the pork bellies that seems like ginger, bean paste, seasonings, and a tad spicy, that is ok on hot que'd meat.  There wasn't even soy sauce to add.  With m

The ramen I ordered was the Kome Miso Cha-Shu ramen which then I added a Miso Egg (+1.50), and Spicy Paste (+1.00) the red dollop in the middle of the pics, along with two potato wedge
