Ma Ma’s Korean Restaurant: DIY Barbecue, Korean Style

Ma Ma’s Korean Restaurant is a favorite among Lawrence restaurants. Indeed, the suburb of Lawrence, Indiana is so close to Indianapolis, many residents of the Circle City frequently make the short trek out to Ma Ma’s to enjoy their distinctive Korean fare.

Lawrence has another Korean restaurant just outside its borders, called Bando Restaurant. The Hisago Restaurant, which concentrates on Japanese cuisine, is also located in the same general region. Far from worrying about the competition, these great Lawrence restaurants see the concentration of Asian ethnic fare as a draw among the many excellent Indanapolis restaurants: Hoosiers know where the best Asian food can be had. Besides, all three dining establishments are sufficiently distinct, and each has plenty to recommend them.

At Ma Ma’s Korean Restaurant, you’ll find yourself surrounded by fragrant, irresistible food before you know it. Lunch is served alongside bowls of vegetables, pickled and tasty, and the fried rice is reportedly some of the very best in Indy.

The Bolgogi Beef makes an incredible luncheon special for less than $6. Try the spicy Pork Saute, a flavorful favorite, or their Scallion Pancake, a specialty. Not heavy in any way, Korean food is healthful, yet filling, so the nearby Indianapolis children who are getting introduced to its goodness are likely forming a commendable lifelong habit.

One of the stars of the show at Ma Ma’s Korean Restaurant is their renowned Korean barbecue. This experience takes place at your table and in the immediate vicinity. Servers place hot coals inside your table’s built-in grill and teach you how to barbecue your own dinner, the Korean way. They bring out a platter of meat, tons of small condiment bowls including items such as anchovy paste, dried fish and fermented vegetables (kimchee). You can create a feast that you and your fellow diners will not soon forget.

There are more than fifty delicious items on Ma Ma’s menu, all Korean, all good and all good for you. You might be surprised to find this authentic Korean restaurant among the small cities of Indiana, right in the middle of Midwest America. Maybe it’s time to find out what all the fuss is about?
