Korean: Barbecue

Sa Rit Gol
3189 W. Olympic Blvd.; (213) 387-0909
Right there with Chung Ki Wa as the Koreatown destination of choice. Absolutely killing barbecue with pork belly a highlight. Best panchan/small dishes in town according to the experts.

Chung Ki Wa
3545 W Olympic Blvd, 323 737-0809.
Great great Korean barbecue and exotic Korean dishes. Try skate wing for adventure! One of my top restaurants in K'town.

Shik Do Rak

Great Korean barbecue w/rice sheets called duk to wrap your meat in. Seafood pancake is greasy and filling. Highly recommended as a variation on the classic theme, great dipping sauces.

Soot Bull Jeep
3136 West 8th Street Los Angeles Phone: 213.387.3865
Charcoal makes all the difference to flavour at Soot Bull Jeep. You will smell like you've survived a forest fire, it is a deeply atavistic pleasure. Galbi/ribs can be scissored off the bone by the waitresses, bulgogi and tongue also excellent.

Ka-San Korean barbecue
3115 Foothill Blvd, La Crescenta, 818 249-550
Good quality Korean gas-fired barbecue with extensive panchan, rice sheets and radish slices for assembly. Also non-barbecue dishes, inevitable karaoke setup and post-church dressy Korean clientele for Sunday lunch.

Kim's Korean Barbeque
8384 Topanga Canyon Blvd - (818) 346-1590
Korean outpost in Canoga Park. Tasty bulgogi if in neighbourhood.

There is a fairly new Korean restaurant in Marina del Rey, it's been a real success since they opened. The atmosphere is great and the service excellent, the prices are a little bit higher than in a Koreatown restaurant, but it won't scare you away.
Highly recomended.

4029 Lincoln Blvd.
Marina del Rey, CA. 90292
(310) 578-7114

(Located in Washington Blvd./Lincoln Blvd. in the little shopping center with a Walgreens in the corner)

Wharo is extremely Americanized and non-authentic, but some may like that. May I recommend Chosun Galbi on Western and Olympic in K-town? Their galbi is absolutely to die for an unmatched anywhere in the LA area.

i've been to almost all of these mentioned and my new favorite is pete wood bbq at 910 E garvey (monterey park or similar). a mom and pop affair that is stupid cheap, offers high quality meat, great, simple panchan (sp?) and uses charcoal. a non-precious sized plate of lean, tasty bulgogi is about $12. the meat's better than soot bull jeep and the ventilation is slightly better ;) real charcoal!! amazing! i'm not bothering with koreatown or garden grove anymore!
