When the Italian food in Rome starts to get boring, you can find plenty of ethnic options to choose from.
One of them is a place called GALBI – the Korean barbeque.
The idea was born when Galbi holders, Stefano Chung e Deuk Uoo Ferretti Min, decided to combine their collective experience gained from their two restaurants, Gainn and Apuleius, to create the first Korean barbecue in Rome using oak coal.
The restaurant offers traditional Korean dishes (two different menu lunch\dinner) and techniques of preparation and cooking, which have ancient origins dating back more than 2000 years. The cooking is done strictly on the grill and what makes this kitchen stand out is the preparation of food by marinating meat and fermented vegetables. While appreciating the interior that weaves a modern aesthetic through Korean traditional atmosphere, you can expect the fineness of sophisticated authentic yet contemporary Korean cuisine by our Chefs
Galbi is moving into its second year with a flourish: the restaurant in one year has received Awards from Gambero Rosso Accademy, Lonely Planet, Food Magazines and reviews continue to extol its delights.
