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.
