Korea Palace in Sterling Heights Brings Barbecuing to the Table

Jane Slaughter praises Korea Palace at 34744 Dequindre Rd. in Sterling Heights in a Metro Times review, and has particularly good things to say about barbecue:
The most entertaining way to go is barbecue, in which meat and scallions are flash-sauteed on a sunken stainless steel grill in the middle of your table. Turn the pieces with tongs and serve yourself.
Ribeye, short ribs, or pork belly can be pre-marinated in the house barbecue sauce — or not. Thinly sliced, marinated ribeye (bulgogi) had much more flavor than marinated, deboned, and cubed short ribs, though the latter cost 35 percent more. The marinade is slightly sweet.
Unmarinated pork belly is also possible, and the online menu offers roasted beef tongue. I saw larger parties who had chosen what looked like a parade of all possible proteins, which they were happily grilling in turn.
From the grill I actually liked best a pork belly and squid "Oh Sam Bulgogi" that was not cooked at the table, though the pork's blessed fattiness tended to get lost under the spicy red sauce.
