Mashibul's trademark is their spicy sauce, or 양념 (yang nyum). This sauce of secret origins is unique and difficult to describe. Let's just say it has an addicting flavor your mouth will never forget. You'll find it on a separate dipping tray on your table, but it also marinates most of their meats.
Mashibul claims to have the #1 양념막창 (marinated makchang) in Daegu, a bold statement here in makchang's city of origin.
The soy bean soup, or 된장찌개 (dwen jang jji gae), is very delicious here. You need to ask for it and pay \1,000 extra.
Mashibul has your typical Korean BBQ setting. There are about 15 metal tables with grills and ventilation. There's usually a loud and drunk crowd with staff running around frantically. The place is extremely popular, so it's usually packed. It's full even on weeknights, so expect to wait for a table on weekends.
Grills need to be changed frequently due to burnt sauce. Just ask 불판 바꿔 주세요(bool-pan ba-kwa jew-say-yo).
From Downtown: less than 10 minute, ~\4,000, taxi ride. Turn left at Chung Gu Nae Guh Li (청구내거리), and it's a few blocks up on your left. It's diagonally across from the Daegu Bank.
