When first uncovered last November, South Korea's Hobak company were right on target when they promised a late March opening date for their 3,090-square-foot, grill right at your table, barbecue restaurant.
Located in a corner spot at nondescript business center, the industrial interior has been designed with posters, props and artwork from the ’80s and ’90s and the kitchen areas are hidden behind mock awning-shaded store fronts.
Hobak likes to concentrate on few menu items, serving only beef and pork and concentrating on the quality of the ingredients. Working under the motto, "sharing great things," they encourage groups to enjoy the charcoal and gas cooking experience.
On the menu, skirt steak is priced at $25.99 and short ribs at $27.99, while Black Angus portions are priced a little higher. The "Hobak Beef" combo for two costs $54.99 and includes Angus brisket, Angus boneless shorts ribs or rib eye, marinated skirt steak or short ribs, bean paste stew, steamed egg, vegetables, Cheddar cheese and the already a big hit with customers, popcorn ice cream.
Pork belly, jowl or neck combo options are also available, plus side dishes like noodle hash, beef garlic chive and anchovy noodle soup.
Since 2009, Hobak has opened 12 restaurants in South Korea and the company intends for Las Vegas to be a launching pad for future U.S. franchises.
