It’s a natural extension of something already gluttonously great: all-you-can-eat Korean barbecue, awaiting your mouth at Palace BBQ in either Bellevue or Federal Way. At dinner, you get 10 kinds of meat (marinated and un-), plus shrimp and octopus, in unlimited quantity for $23.99. Weekday lunch is a half-dozen meats for $15.99 — an excellent deal if you have nothing to do for the rest of the afternoon but nap. (A $5 charge for leftovers curbs food waste and preserves Palace’s profit margin.) The Bellevue branch — which comes recommended by Trove co-owner/chef Rachel Yang — is more Spartan than palatial, with bright lights, shiny vinyl booths and Korean beer-girl posters. The food makes up for it: extra-flavorful marinades, especially good beef short ribs and just the overwhelming variety of it all. Of the tasty banchan, the kimchi and tofu skin are spicy standouts. And despite Yelp reviews to the contrary, the staff was unimpeachably helpful and friendly, with servers stopping by to dispatch more meat onto the grill, cut it up with scissors and offer more of anybody’s favorite sides. 15932 N.E.
