yo city you end up going out on wed? I ended up taking my boy to lucques on sat and we killed it.

Had the spicy something loin starter along with the clam/pancetta starter which is fucking great. He got the veal cheeks which were alright and I just had to get the braised short rib since that's what they're known for, was the best I've had.

Had the baked apple with date ice cream though I wanted to do the donut with creme fraiche. Had some obsidian cab I think it was, not a wine guy but it was very good per the rec from the hostess.

Tried Jae Bu Do in Koreatown the other day. Holy mother of god.... if you love shellfish and charcoal grilled food, you must go here.

Hands down, Kang hodong baekjeong is the best Kbbq in Koreatown, and the server even cooks for you. Super friendly service there (only if you were Korean), wait is 1-2 hrs long, but worth it. Pork and beef combo, not all you can eat tho

For Asian charcoal yakatori, hit up Nanban-Kan in W. L.A.

Yup...ended up with:
chicken liver toast
crispy pig head, chow chow, sour cream, ginger-scallion vinaigrette
barbeque pork belly sandwiches, slaw
poutine, oxtail gravy, cheddar
hamachi tostada, herbs, fish sauce vinaigrette, peanut
marrow bone, chimichurri, caramelized onions
melted petit basque, chorizo, grilled bread
tres leches, dulce de leche
bacon chocolate crunch bar, s&p ice cream
Beer + wine

For some reason, we weren't that adventurous - staying away from the internal organs and all that, but I was still fully satisfied. Just gives me another reason to head back, which will definitely happen.

Lucques is next on my list...unless I finally decide to get off my ass and go to Red Medicine before that. (I know that's not really a comparison, but I just found out where it was after drunkingly walking the streets after The Phoenix)

Anyone know a good Jajangmyeon spot in K-Town (or anywhere else)? My Korean friends have failed me.

Animal. To be honest, I'm not that adventurous to begin with...I try to enjoy organs but I'm not the biggest fan...I would rather just have a slab of non-organ meat. The most 'adventurous' thing I've eaten was duck heart and snail salad at St. John's in London - it wasn't as bad as I thought but wouldn't order it again. I'm sure some of the guys here have eaten a live snake soaked in scorpion poison or some shit

ya i ain't into organs though i've had calf brain ravioli

i hate when people say oh it's tastes like such and such, oh ya well why don't you just eat such and such

i want to go out to eat again, somewhere new not sure where

I ate there last night - it's really great. Tiny room but we lucked into a open table. The service was very friendly and warm, the raw oysters were exceptional. I ended up trying a bunch of different things - crab salad, grilled oysters, fried oysters. It was all good but nothing compared to the raw oysters. Next time I'm going to keep it simple.

My brother is visiting in a few.....deciding between ink and picca? Any other suggestions...nothing downtown staying more westside
post #1648 of 2286
ink for sure
post #1649 of 2286
i need to check that place out, what are the hits?
post #1650 of 2286
think i'm gonnna stick with Picca in our group of 4....just seems might be more flavors and exotic...ink seems too modern and I'm not in the mood for that now. i might do the tasting menu there before the end of the month though..we'll see.
