    A new Korean BBQ restaurant is open next to the Fox River Mall | The Buzz

    By Jelissa Burns, Appleton Post-Crescent,


    APPLETON - The new Korean barbecue restaurant that took over the former Osaka Japanese Steak House and Sushi, 4421 W. Wisconsin Ave., is now welcoming in customers ahead of its grand opening ceremony later this month.

    Korean barbecue is a communal dining experience where guests are in charge of cooking their own meats and vegetables.

    592 Korean BBQ offers customers an all-you-can-eat experience where they can cook their own foods on a table-top grill installed at every table.

    Laura Yang and her husband also own and manage the 592 Korean BBQ in Oshkosh, 2010 W. 9th Ave., but the locations are noticeably different.

    Joy Wang partnered with the Yangs to become a co-owner of the Appleton location.

    "At the Oshkosh location, there are no table-top grills, so customers order what they'd like, and it is made by the chefs and brought to the table," said Wang. "Customers are able to cook their own food at the Appleton location."

    Wang said customers can expect fresh, never frozen, quality meats and vegetables when ordering from the restaurant.

    "We pay quality prices for our meat to ensure our customers are getting the best of the best," Wang said.

    A few of these quality meat options include hangar steak, beef tongue, black pepper beef cube, Kobe wagyu, pork belly, salmon, shrimp and beef, chicken and pork bulgogi in a house-made marinade.

    Appetizers and fresh fruit are included in the all-you-can-eat option with customers being able to choose from items like spring rolls, Korean cheese dogs, fried chicken wings and tteok-bokki, spicy rice cakes.

    592 Korean BBQ is an inclusive restaurant that offers vegetarian and gluten-free options as well.

    Perhaps one of the most unique aspects of the restaurant is the robotic servers that can bring customers to their tables and serve food.

    The restaurant's soft opening was June 1, but it is gearing up for a grand opening ceremony, scheduled tentatively for June 19. The ceremony will include complimentary food and drinks, live entertainment and more.

    More information on the grand opening will be posted on 592 Korean BBQ's Facebook page as the date nears.

    For now, Wang encourages customers to enjoy the top-quality ingredients that can be found at the restaurant.

    "We are so proud of the quality of food we offer our customers and can't wait for people to experience it themselves," Wang said.
