braai republic

braai republic
서울 용산구 이태원로14길 19; also at 서울 용산구 이태원동 63-4

what was consumed: the meat platter! and the chicken liver salad (because i love chicken livers). and fries. and loaded bread. YUM.

the only other exposure to south african cuisine was nando's peri peri (which i love). so when folks suggested braai republic for south african food, i was all for it.

at braai republic, you definitely want to get their meat platter. a friend of mine once told me that it's good for sharing (and it is. it also comes with sides, so it's plenty of food), but sharing isn't always caring, a la joey tribiani from friends. i.e., on a hungry day, i could probably eat the whole platter. but i'm a big eater, so maybe don't use me as a gauge. now, that said, the meat platter along with a few appetizers? that would make quite the hearty meal for a couple of people.

braai republic has quite a few tasty appetizers as well. i like the chicken liver salad (though not so much a salad) and wish i could eat chicken livers all the time. hahaha. but their fries are meaty and delish and their loaded bread! i forget what they're called, but they're pretty yummy and great for sharing.

if you know you're headed to braai republic, be sure to make reservations to ensure that you'll have a table. and don't worry, you won't regret it!
