Well now, Margaret, you bring up several points...

If you are averse to trying a Korean restaurant, are you also 
NOT a fan of any oriental food? 

We don't generally expect to be served Cat Beijing Style when
we go out.  But other ethnic groups world wide certainly do eat
and enjoy foods we would recoil from. How about the fried
queen bees..?  And the termites? And gosh, Jimmie even had
crocodile at the mongolian restaurant!  

Yes, I was struck by the fact that all Korean meats seem to be
marinated in sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic, chives and a bit of
sugar. It's delicious, believe me! But the zillions of side dishes 
are not marinated. They are prepared with a big variety of sauces,
some hot, some sweet, and do not taste alike. There are quite a
few pickled dishes. And there are tiny pots of soft scrambled eggs
which just melt in your mouth..  My son-in-law likes BiBimBop, 
a deep pot or bowl of rice with a topping of shredded meat and
vegies, and an egg.   Yes, there's lots of variety.
