All you can eat Korean BBQ with Vena, Rick, Andrew, Kristina, and Michael.
We needed some variety from dim sum and dumplings... and of course, while eating kbbq, we started talking about Taiwanese breakfast, handmade noodles, Sichuan food, and hashbrowns. 'cause we might have food on the brain?
Interesting connected round tables for larger groups here, a few regular rectangular tables, and some smaller single round tables in the back. A rather limited ban chan selection, including potato salad, kim chi, seaweed, bean sprouts, and onions (!).
Assuming you're all good with pork and only a little of beef, the silver menu ($18.99) isn't bad. Two kinds of fairly decent brisket, two flavors of quality pork belly, and both pork and beef bulgogi. Beef bulgogi in particularly wasn't bad at all. Pork neck (well, pork shoulder really) was nicely formed slabs of lightly salted pork, and to our surprise, the makchang (beef stomach) was excellent.
Oddly, they were very skimpy with steamed egg here, and the kimchi pancake was very plain. Kind of hard to justify coming back here given the limited menu for the price, but in spite of the limited selection, what we had was actually pretty good.
Headed to Westwood afterwards for shaved snow at Chilly Ribbons and the Hong Kong egg waffle. Lots of different shaved snow flavors was nice, and to have egg waffle in the neighborhood is convenient-- there's better to be had in lots of places, but to skip the drive, this wasn't bad.
