We decided to meet at Seoul Station as that made it easier for both parties to rendezvous. The temperature on Saturday night was as follows:
Here is a picture of Bennigan's at Seoul Station:
Bennigan's was packed. Luckily, we only had to wait 15 minutes for a table. You would presume that the style of food here in a family restaurant would be similar to back home. In some aspects it is, but there is always a local influence. Check out their full menu here, or read on and you'll see what I mean.
For example, take a look at my starter salad, the Lemon Sherbet Salad (yes, that's lemon sherbet). It consisted of iceberg lettuce, crushed cashews, some sort of tangy dressing, only to be topped off with a healthy scoop of lemon sherbet and drizzled with balsamic vinegar to top things off. It was quite tasty, but it the cold lemon sherbet dominated the flavor of the salad--plus it almost gave me a brain freeze!
For my main course, I decided to go with their Triple Combo Steak, one of the features of their new BBQ Grill Menu. This dish consisted of a rib eye steak, a chicken breast, tiger prawns, a grilled slice of onion and pineapple, a baked potato with sour cream, and--a ramekin full of orange marmalade. I wasn't sure what to do with the marmalade so I avoided it altogether. Now, this is where it gets interesting. After my second bite of my steak, I found something that every diner despises--a hair in my food. Yup, a hair was ingrained into my precious steak--doh! We notified the staff and they were quick to rectify the situation. They immediately prepared a new plate and informed us that my dish was going to be complimentary! Sweet!
Here's my first steak in all its glory...
...and the second plate, which arrived 10 minutes later. It was an excellent steak I might add, and I would recommend trying it if you ever visit a Bennigan's location. I was so stuffed I left two bites of chicken on my plate--I just could not eat anymore. I lowered my head in shame at that very moment.
Devante had the Beef & Chicken Quesadillas, which I also helped her finish. I forgot to take a picture of her plate, but here it is from their website:
Currently, there is a promotion for all KTF mobile users. You can get a free dish on a Friday in February by displaying a graphic on your cellphone downloaded from the net. Also, if you have a KTF member card (which I was told is free from any KTF location), you will benefit from 20% off most dishes. Definitely worth it in my opinion!
Although this was our second visit to Bennigan's, I enjoyed visiting the Mokdong location more as they have a fully loaded and rockin salad bar that is included with your order. So you might want to check out which locations have them. Here is the name of our waitress from the Mokdong location--she literally was bogus (I've been waiting to post this...finally!):
Locations! Here they are along with their respective telephone numbers. There are many to choose from:
