A few Korean flavors at Hines Ward's new restaurant.

Former Pittsburgh Steeler receiver Hines Ward is opening a new restaurant in Seven Fields, and the menu at Table 86 will feature a few Korean flavors: Mae Oon Shrimp, Korean barbecue wings, a pulled pork sandwich with Korean barbecue sauce, and Korean BBQ ribs. (Mae Oon / 매운 is an adjective that means spicy in Korean). Ward's mother is Korean, and Hines became especially well-known in South Korea after being named Super Bowl MVP in 2006. He told the Tribune-Review yesterday:
There are some nods to his mother's cooking, too.

“Asian-style, Korean barbecue things my mom has taught me over the years,” Ward said. “I love the Korean ribs.”
