On this week's Ask the Critic, Carey talked about restaurants that let you grill up your own meal:

Go for a pork combination platter at Hanjoo and you'll have a thick quartz slab erected on your table, heated by a gas burner, and a plate of raw pork brought to you. Drop each slice on the hot crystal and watch it sizzle, as the fat runs down and collects in the kimchi at the bottom. Eat one slice in a time, wrapped in a perilla leaf if you choose, and save that pork-saturated kimchi for the end.

See all her picks here.
