Sae Ma Eul at Jaya One is a Korean BBQ Restaurant like Daorae Korean BBQ Restaurant where you can barbecue your own meat at the table. It is also using charcoal which will produce tastier meat compared to electronic BBQ pit. The side dish such as kimchi, pickles, peanuts and cucumbers are free and unlimited refill. Since Sae Ma Eul is just next to our office, we came here a few times for lunch and dinner.
Sae Ma Eul‘s Baby Octopus Set Lunch with unlimited refill of side dishes.
Our favorite set lunch is this baby octopus with rice ball. All set comes with unlimited refill of side dishes and green lettuce.
Other set lunches come with either BBQ Pork or BBQ Chicken with choices of black soy bean noodle or white rice. Actually their set lunch changed a few times, do visit their Facebook for latest set lunches or promotions.
If you ordered the set lunch, the meat is already barbecued for you to save your precious lunch time and also to prevent you from smelling like BBQ meat in the office.

The BBQ Pork. Personally I prefer the BBQ chicken.
My bowl of rice with Kimchi and BBQ chicken on top.
If you came for dinner, you can BBQ yourself or the friendly staffs of Sae Ma Eul can help you if you are helpless.
Barbecuing the baby octopus.

A close up on the baby octopus. Very fresh and chewy.
The ingredients for the rice ball. You can play with it while waiting for the BBQ baby octopus to be perfectly barbecued.
Once you make the rice balls with your hands (plastic gloves provided), you can eat it just like that or you can barbecue it a while to get the outside crunchy.
Unlimited refill of green leafy lettuce to wrap your barbecued meat.
Kimchi stew that comes with some of the set lunch.
Look at all the ingredients in the Kimchi stew, the Kimchi, chilies, Enoki mushroom and tofu.
Steamed egg, another dish from the set lunch.
Inside the Sae Ma Eul Korean BBQ Restaurant.
The Sae Ma Eul has this outdoor seat which is more suitable for eating BBQ as it is less smelly than inside of the restaurant.
Spotted this jar of giant ginseng in the restaurant.

The menu of Sae Ma Eul. The BBQ set is awesome but I never try their other dishes such as the ramyeon, pork rib stew and the Kimchi fried rice.
Let me end this post with this panorama photo of the interior of this awesome Korean BBQ restaurant. Sae Ma Eul can be very packed during weekend night, so do make a reservation or come early for dinner.
