If there is a place where all the different nations and cultures are accentuated, this is L.A. This city is characterized by its diversity of people from all the world, so you just need to look around and start enjoying it!! 🙂
It has always attracted me to know different cultures to mine (it’s one of the main reasons I came here!). I was lucky enough to meet Jennie from my first day at the office: her family came from Korea, so she took me to enjoy an authentic Korean barbecue! One of the most popular styles of Asian cuisine, also known as KBBQ or gogigui (literally “meat + roasting”).
We went to a typical plaza in the Korean district, next to W 6th St, where there are some restaurants serving Korean food; we needed to be there early because the place gets really busy and if you go after 6 p.m., you have to wait maybe two hours to sit… it’s crazy! So we were there at 5;30 p.m. to start the dinner (something still strange to me hahah).
The servers came by with the meat and began to cook and cut the meat for us, and soon we were stuffing our faces with the most delicious pork I’ve ever tasted! It tasted better dipped in sauce, topped with kimchi, green onions, and wrapped in lettuce. (Reasonably priced and more than enough for two diners.)
Just in case if there is anyone that think this is not enough, I need to tell you that in the same plaza, there is place where serve a delicious ice-creams. I couldn’t avoid trying one of them even thought I couldn’t eat anything else! The place is very nice; there is a illuminated-letters sign on the wall, so cute, that says: “Eat desserts, be a monster”. It’s perfect to take a photo with your ice-cream!
Definitely, is one of the things that you need to try if you are living here. If you do it, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!
See you guys! 🙂
