Now, I have to be as transparently honest as I can in admitting that this recommendation comes from a sort of biased place of my absolutely loving everything that has to do with Asian or Oriental culture. I personally spent six months in Daegu, South Korea, and if I could live anywhere in the world, it would have to be Japan. Nonetheless, I am sure that the reader will find Oz, the authentic BBQ cuisine to be a real treat for the whole family.
As the state’s capital, Sacramento is home to some pretty amazing dining establishments, with the incredible Morton’s Steakhouse being just one such example. However, with all eateries being kept into consideration, there are simply none that can compare to the likes of the unique, and raw culturally rich experience offered by the people at Oz Korean BBQ, located at 3343 Bradshaw Rd, Sacramento, CA 95827.
I can personally attest to this fact on a variety of different levels. First and foremost, it has become a sort of family tradition that on special occasions, that we typically hope to make a reservation at Oz and to spend the evening there. But that’s not all.
Coming from my own personal experience in having spent time in Korea, I can account for the fact that the dining experience you will receive at Oz is about as close to the likes of the same BBQ experience that you would have if you were in Korea.
For instance, they have a personalized BBQ grill in the center of the table for the customer to cook their own food as would be the case if you were eating in South Korea. Not only that, but the degree of service is on par as well. You see, in South Korea, they are extremely big on customer service, especially in the restaurant business. This means that you get more for your buck in terms of what you order. So, if you order a platter of Bulgogi, which is a kind of Korean beef that is my favorite and that I highly recommend, in addition to that, the restaurant provides dishes like rice, kimchi which is another phenomenal Korean essential, seaweed, and other dishes at no additional cost, as you will see at Oz.
When you are finished, treat you and your family to some of the fine Korean desserts, like that of the delectable mochi ice cream, and if you have a little extra time on your hands, also try and see if you can stomach some of their notorious rice instilled vodka known as soju, which is essentially Korean equivalent of the Japanese drink sake.
For a truly original Sacramento dining experience unlike any other, try Oz Korean BBQ today and tell them Aaron sent you. You won’t regret it.
