Why Saebyukjib (새벽집) is special ?
It boasts some of the best quality meat in the city, with the high prices to prove it. Featuring a stellar selection of stews and rice dishes, late-night favorites include a doenjang stew to cure all hangovers, while the yook-hwe (raw beef) bibimbap (₩8,000) is arguably the best bibimbap in Seoul.
For the truly adventurous, try the thick yook-hwe (₩28,000 plus 10 percent service charge) -- sashimi-style thick slices of fresh raw beef.

Tips for you
This bbq restaurant is popular with late night clubgoers as it is close to the Gangnam clubs and open 24/7. Their prices are pretty reasonable for Korean beef "Han-u" (adjusted for location). The most expensive is the Kkotdeungshim at 58,000 won for 150g or 5oz. Some places a few blocks away will charge the same for just 100 grams. (You can see my full list of where to eat domestic Korean beef bbq in Seoul at jencookskorean.com/where-to-eat-han-u-in-korea) They also have much cheaper beef options. My favorite thing there was the raw beef "yookwe bibimbap" for only 10,000 won or about $10. I would not recommend them for the premium more expensive beef but they are a value for the cheaper options.
Saebyeok Jib is well known for it's fresh Korean bbq. Quality of the beef is always top notch. It is missing a little of the flair and price of other Korean bbq places, but for the quality of the meat this place is consistently the best. This place is also known for it's yuk-hwe (raw beef) bi-bim-bap (rice dish with mixed veggies) add as much spicy sauce as you want I have seen people use a teaspoon to almost 1/5th the bowl. Which is also best in class. They also have a cow's blood soup called hye-jang-geok. Hye-jang is probably best translated stomach/hangover fixer and geok means soup. (I tried spelling this the correct way, but the site asked me not to use profanity, haha) With their bitter greens and rich soup cut by the iron tasting blocks of cooked cow's blood. It is Korean heaven. Every dish you order here is solid Korean cooking. I highly recommend visiting this restaurant at any time. One of the best restaurants in Korea.
