    1. Sa Rit Gol seems to be the boards concensus for best K BBQ. We also have found Tahoe to be really good.

        I second Sa Rit Gol. Not only is the meat high quality and the panchan some of the best in the city but their non bubbaque dishes are fabulous as well.

          Oooh, I love Tahoe Galbi - pretty classy joint and delicious meats. Have fun getting rid of the garlicky-BBQ smell out of your clothes though ;)

            Why would you want to do that? (g)

        2. We ended up at Soot Bul Gui Rim 2 on Vermont.

          We got there at 7:05 so we were able to snag a great spot right on the street in front (parking changed over at 7p)

          AYCE 14.99 and it was good. Fun. Smokey.

          Will go back.

            Great. I want to check that place out too, after reading the review of it a few days back. :)

          2. I haven't been in ages but I remember good things about Safety Zone on Wilshire and Harvard.

            1. My favorite all you can eat Korean BBQ place in KTown is Mu Dung San. For $15/person, there are BBQ beef, short ribs, sirloin steak, beef tongue, pork, steamed egg, soup, and all those wonderful Korean appetizers. I especially like their marinated beef short ribs.

              1040. S. Western Avenue

                is the kalbi over-marinated? sometimes i prefer it plain - only using the dipping sauces provided. i like gui rim 2 a lot but felt the kalbi was too sweet.

                1. re: eatdrinknbmerry

                  The kalbi is marinated, but definately not over-marinated. I don't think they have plain kalbi. I remember Manna serves plain golbi, but I personally prefer the marinated ones from Mu Dung San.

              2. One of my favs is SooWon Galbi (856 S Vermont Ave). Service is great here, banchan is limited but good, and the prices are decent. Their jumulluk (beef seasoned with salt and pepper) is great. Their galbi is good too – not TOO sweet.

                It can get a bit smoky since they use charcoal (but definitely not as bad as Soot Bull Jeep). I went this past Saturday and walked out smelling like I walked out of a forest fire…….

                  I've got that down on my korean bbq to-eat list along with Sa Rit Gol, Park's BBQ and Mu Dung San. Time to invest in elastic sweat pants.

                  1. re: eatdrinknbmerry

                    Sa Rit Gol has been on my to-dine list forEVER.

                2. umm... hands down park's bbq....
                  you know you've got great quality when you can't get in the door during lunch and dinner!
