Sweet Home Grill
- Mike Kilgore
Has anyone tried this little stand alone place right on the NE corner of Santa Monica Blvd. and Wellesley? It says it is a Korean Grill on the outside. No inside to sit down, just a few stools in front. Looks chowhoundish, but you never know.
Ate there today for lunch. I've passed it several times before wondering how it would be, but usually told myself "I'll eat there next time". Its not bad, for fast/cheap food. Its a Korean BBQ place that has short ribs, beef, chicken shrimp with rice, bean sprouts and a salad. Its only "Korean" just as a Teriyaki place is "Japanese". Food is decent and cheap for fast food (although they cook it fresh). $5 bucks got me a beef teriyaki type plate and it came with a seaweed-miso type soup that was pretty good.
No real "authentic" Korean foods (kim-bap, bulgoki, etc), but not bad for a quick lunch that beats (what doesn't) Yoshinoya or the other "japanese fast food" places on Santa Monica. I'll come back and eat there when I'm in the mood for rice/teriyaki type foods.
