Snack Review: Pringles Barbecue

Details: More information can be found at https://www.pringles.com/us/products/favorites/bbq.html

Score: 7/10

Pringles Barbecue is one of their most standard flavors. It’s not bad, but it is not as good as Sour Cream and Onion or Ranch.

I think the most distinct flavor of this thing is the sweetness. Pringles Barbecue if very sweet. It also has some of that smoky, molasses taste that you’d expect from barbecue sauce. But the primary flavor is sweetness.

Overall, this isn’t bad and if you’re in the mood for something sweet and savory, Pringles Barbecue will suffice.

Score: 7.3/10

Came here a while back for some Korean barbecue. Got the pork belly and some galbi. Most meat items on the menu are somewhere from $20 to $30.

The nice thing is that if you order Korean barbecue up to a certain amount (we ordered two meat items and qualified), then you get a whole bunch of sides that will pretty much stuff you until you’re full. It’s your standard Korean Banchan like steamed egg, appetizers, rice, lettuce to wrap the meat in and some other stuff.

Service was good. The environment was fine.

Overall, this place was fine.

Restaurant Review: The Cast Iron Pot 3

Score: 7.4/10

The Cast Iron Pot 3 is yet another Korean barbecue place in the Murray Hill area of Flushing.

The interior is all right. The seating has tables with stools and tables with chairs and booths. I don’t really like the stools, but I get the Korean style motif they were going for and I imagine cleaning is easier with these metal-barrel-stools they got.

Waiters were very nice.

They cook the meat in this big concave iron pot, which is novel, but not great as the splatter splashes outward onto you as the meat cooks.

The meat they served was of a good variety. They had pork jowl, which in my opinion is the tastiest meat at Korean barbecue which is about as good, if not better than galbi. There are also some sides you can order like beef soup and steamed egg. This is an all you can eat place and it costs about $29 per person before tax and tip. You can order as many of these sides as you want.

Overall, this place was great.

Score: 6.8/10

Mothership Meat Company is a relatively new barbecue place that opened in Long Island City. The food is just okay. I think the most attractive thing about this place is the location and how comfortable the space was.
