PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Korean barbecue restaurant Miga, once located on 15th Street in center city, has finally reopened at a new location, 2001 Hamilton Street, in the Cityview Condo building.

General manager Jason Kang (top photo) says customers sit at special tables where they cook their own food.

“Korean barbecue — it could be beef, sliced pork belly, it could be a sweet marinade, it could be a spice sauce,” he explains.  “We have all different types of meats and flavoring.  We even have seafood, and we also have the option where we can take the grill out and put in a huge pot where they could cook their own soups as well.”

Meanwhile, U-Bahn opens next week, at 1320 Chestnut Street.  Teddy Sourias, who also owns Brü restaurant next door, explains what the name of his new restaurant means.

“(It) is essentially a German underground system.  So we’re going with local transit (as our theme).  We’ll have a lot of local beers, a lot of local cheeses, the sandwiches will be made from local (Pennsylvania) meats.”

And the annual fundraiser for the Reading Terminal Market, known as “Party For The Market,” takes place Saturday night, February 21st, inside the historic market.

Sarah Levitsky, marketing and events manager, says there will be dozens of food vendors on hand, and lots of variety of food and drink.

“So, there will be a pig roast, and there are often special treats that we don’t make every day.  So it will feel like a party and not like we extended the hours of the market,” she tells What’s Cooking.
