I love me some good Korean BBQ.

February 12, 2008

We attempted to go to Father’s Office in Santa Monica for some good burgers and sweet potato fries the other night.  Bouncer: “I don’t know if this makes a difference to you but we ran out of burgers.”  WHAAAT?!?!  I didn’t even know that was possible.  We left immediately.

Since we already had our heart set on cow, we decided we might as well drive over to Koreatown to my favorite Korean BBQ place, Soot Bull Jeep.  It definitely hit the spot.  We ordered a plate of kalbi and a plate of gyu-tan (tongue for you non-Japanese speakers) and it was perfect!  I love all the pickled side dishes at Korean restaurants… kimchee and garlic everything and I’m in heaven. 



The only downfall to Korean BBQ is that you end up smelling like your food when you leave.  Soot Bull Jeep has charcoal grills so in lieu of smelling like kimchee and meat when you leave, you smell like kimchee, meat AND smoke for the rest of the night until you shower.  Everytime I’ve gone to Soot Bull Jeep, it’s been super crowded.  Parking is hard to find at dinnertime, sometimes the wait is long and there is somewhat of a language barrier between us non-Korean speakers and the waitresses… but I keep going back because the quality of the meat is good and I’ve never left disappointed.  I think whatever downfalls there might be are outweighed by the happy stomach in the end!
