All you can eat BBQ and Korean delicacies in Tilburg, Is it as good as it sounds?
We decided to go have a taste and judge Kimchi Boulevard. Chana took her time to try all of the food she could and here is her verdict!

Kimchi Boulevard

Main entrance

Main entrance Kimchi Boulevard

The Kimchi Boulevard is an all you can eat concept restaurant located in Tilburg, the Netherlands. As a matter of fact, it’s part of Asian Boulevard. This is the name for entire chain, Kimchi Boulevard and Sushi Boulevard. The restaurant is located at Curlingstraat 1 in Tilburg, close to the cinema. The location is nice and would certainly invite for a full evening programme after your dinner or lunch. There is plenty of parking space but don’t forget about the parking prices (I did…). Going with public transport is also easy as the bus stop is right in front and will take about 15-20 mins to get back to the city centre.

For a fixed price (€26,50,- p.p. in weekends) you can eat your heart out at this restaurant. From fresh cut meat meant to be grilled at your own table grill, to served dishes prepared by their chef. Each table is set with a few side dishes such as kimchi (salted, fermented vegetables, often cabbage) and BBQ sauce. Sounds yummy!

Menu

The menu offers a lot of differents dishes such as the classic table grill meat & seafood, BBQ toppings, soups, salads and even a few kimbabs (korean style sushi). For drinks they serve all common sodas and alcohol but of course it wouldn’t be complete without the Cass and Hite beers as well as the soju (the nations nr.1 beverage) and makgeolli (korean rice wine).
Ordering food from your menu isn’t hard. It’s pretty much as any other all-you-can-eat concepts: order 3 dishes per person per round with a maximum of 5 rounds. Eat away!

Menu Kimchi Boulevard 2018

What I ate

My attention was caught by all the nice pictures on their menu. I decided to try the dak-bulgogi (spicy chicken), even though I already consumed a great deal of spices with all those side dishes. In all my enthusiasm I turned the heat on high and burnt through the first baking sheet quit fast. But the dak-bulgogi was ready in no time and sizzling hot on my plate! This tastes good with both ssamjang (white korean bean sauce) and garlic sauce.

For the next round I tried the classic bulgogi (marinated beef). After getting the hang of table grilling I was more confident in grilling all sorts at once. I ordered garlic, mushroom and onion toppings as a side. The flavours melt right into your meat if you do it right and taste perfect with any spicy sauce.

Aside from the meat I ordered chaltteog (sweet rice cakes). I have tried the spicy variant once before, but it didn’t appeal to me at all. This however tastes great! A good alternative in between all those spicy foods. For all sweet tooth lovers I would definitely recommend this. Served with A LOT of white sesame seeds.

Next to the sweet cakes I ordered the leek and kimchi pancakes as well. I like these a lot, but there’s lots of fatty oils escaping from the sides. But hey, you can definitely tell it’s fresh from the kitchen and served immediately.

There are a few other dishes I would recommend when visiting, that I didn’t order this time but have tried prior to this visit.

These are:

  • Bibimbab (literal meaning: mixed rice). This is served in a hot stone bowl with white rice, egg and several vegetables. Before eating, make sure to mix all the content in the bowl well together for the best experience. Be careful when eating because this is very hot!
  • Kimchi cchige (spicy korean soup). For a kimchi fan this is no exception. A rich and filling spicy soup made of kimchi.
  • Saeu-kkochigui (shrimp skewer). A dish that can definitely not be left out of korean cuisine. Especially tasty with dry spicy herbs on top.

Verdict

Food ★★★★★

If you’re looking for a good place to try out korean food, you should definitely head to Kimchi boulevard. The all-you-can-eat concept is appealing for a lot of people or first timers. I’d definitely recommend to go with a big group of friends so you can try a lot of different foods in one sitting and you don’t have a lot of waiting time in between as there is always someone managing the grill or has some grilled goods ready to eat. The quality of all the food is good.

Vegetarian-friendly ★★☆☆☆

Given this is a barbecue oriënted restaurant, one can assume the vegetarian meals are limited and that is very true. There are no grill options for vegetarians with the exception of toppings. This leaves fewer options open, only on the left side but still contains meat-based dishes as well. If you are a vegetarian or bringing a vegetarian friend, have them check the menu online first!

Drinks ★★★★☆

As for the drinks, they offer a good variety of different alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. A good balance of well-known brands in the Netherlands as well as Korean drinks. Prices are average from €2,30 up to €6,50 per glass serving.

Accessibility ★★★★☆

As I have mentioned before, the location is very accessible by car and bus. Location seems good too.The reason I gave 4 fours is that a spot in the heart of the city would be even better. Maybe for the future when korean cuisine is widely accepted :).

Price ★★★☆☆

Overall prices for food are average. Not quite on a budget but also not overly expensive. A price you would expect for an all-you-can-eat restaurant. If I’m not mistaken there is also no time limit on reservations. so you can relax during your stay and eat until the end.

I would like to point out that some staff members should be a bit more elaborate on the concept e.g. explaining how to use the table grill, turning it on/off, medium-high heat and also explanation on the food and general information on how korean cuisine is consumed. Other than that, I hope they will provide the same quality food and service as they have up until now.

Something else I noticed is that there is no option for online reservation at Kimchi Boulevard, only for Sushi Boulevard. I can imagine that sushi is more popular by demand, but it the kimchi place was surely filled as well!

All in all great recommendation from me. Bonus points for the kpop music played in the background!
