We’re spending our holiday in the States – first time for the boys – including Los Angeles and Orange County, Las Vegas, and Grand Canyon – the farthest (distance), longest (duration), and most complicated (itinerary) trip that we’ve ever taken.
After a few days at Disneyland, we’re back in LA for a breather before going to Vegas.
As a law student at USC, I lived in Koreatown.
My go-to restaurant for Korean BBQ was Chosun Korean BBQ (see KOREAN ABROAD).
Since then, the establishment has been dramatically renovated, at least as far as decor is concerned.
I don’t know how these prices compare to other restaurants in the neighborhood nowadays, but I wouldn’t have been able to afford eating here if the food had been so expensive back then – $35 for sam gyup sal (pork belly)?!
However, the fancier decor and higher prices don’t seem to have had much if any of a positive influence on the food, which was as competently unremarkable as ever.
The galbee (yangnyeom galbi) was a tad chewy with a slightly odd aftertaste, as if marinated in a bottled product containing too many additives.
Still, it was just the thing for a mid-trip rejuvenator.
