Located on the second floor of an anonymous office tower, Qing He Gu can seem a little stranded. Its reputation is such however, that they don’t have to worry about foot traffic – this is a restaurant that people seek out. Even The Wonder Girls (the K-pop sensation behind ‘Nobody’) have been here. What they, and the Korean businessmen and families who pack out the large space, come for is a brauhaus-style experience: the wooden tables and bench seating feel like a Korean barbecue version of a Paulaner’s bar.

Qing He Gu is a little pricier than some of the other Gubei Korean joints, but it needn’t break the bank. The wafer-thin sliced beef (48RMB) is tender, juicy and served in a generous portion, as is the pork alternative (48RMB). Both are barbecued to
perfection by the waitstaff over a table-top bowl of hot coals.
