Manimal Smokehouse | Yongsan-gu, Seoul


Located in Itaewon, Manimal Smokehouse is one of the first American BBQ restaurants to open in Seoul, Korea.¬† The first thing you’ll notice when you walk into Manimal is the smell coming from the meat smoker, which runs on oak wood.

The menu offers a variety of delicious smoked meats, such as brisket, pulled pork, chicken, spare ribs, baby back ribs, andouille sausage, and Texas cheddar sausages.¬†Manimal’s vibe is akin to a traditional Texas smokehouse. Inside, you’ll find wood paneling and a simple dark interior. While it’s not small, the restaurant isn’t too spacious so expect a line during peak dinner hours.
