K-town series: Ssang Kogi Nara

Just look for the lit-up sign that you can't understand…

Oh good, English…

I know I said that we were going to stay away from Korean BBQ joints for this series but after further thought, it didn’t seem right since KBBQ is such a staple of the K-town restaurant industry.  Rather than blog about the well-known joints like Road to Seoul or Genwa, Kristen of Rock My Palate and I decided to check out a restaurant we had never heard of but came recommended by Mattatouille.  The draw?  Not only did this place offer AYCE kbbq, it also offered AYCE sushi/sashimi.

Picture Perfect…

Weeding through some of my off-loaded pics, there’s quite a bit from restaurants and events that I probably will never write up.  Rather than let them go to waste, here’s a post just for your eyes.  :)

Vegas, baby… Honey Pig off the Strip

Last October, Husband and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary on the Big Island of Hawaii.  We stayed at the Hilton Waikoloa where we promptly got suckered into buying a timeshare with their Grand Vacations Club.  Fast forward a few months later, we get a call inviting us to stay at the Las Vegas HGVC on the Strip for a whopping $99 (plus tax & fees) for 3 nights.  $99 (plus a few hours listening to some guy try to sell us on an upgrade) for 3 whole nights?  Um, okay, sure! We decided to take advantage of this deal during my birthday since it was a major one…the BIG 3-0.

One of my friends moved there a little over a year ago so we met up with him Friday . . . → Read More

How big is your wok? Mongolian BBQ at Big Wok

Husband is a big fan of Mongolian BBQ.  When we discovered an all-you-can-eat place in Manhattan Beach during one of our exploratory drives, he was ecstatic.  Big Wok has now become one of our “go to” places for when we don’t feel like cooking and want something inexpensive and filling to eat.

Wok me, Amadeus

This place is pretty popular, especially during the dinner hours.  We usually try to get there  earlier so that we don’t have to wait in lines to get our food and have it cooked. We’ve never had to wait to be seated and are always greeted quickly by a smiling waitress.  Service here has always been great.  Parking on the other hand…

New Seoul BBQ

New Seoul BBQ

Over the Christmas break, the Husband and I met up with my parents for lunch in Orange County.  The last few times we’ve done this, we’ve gone to New Seoul BBQ, an all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ Buffet.  The reason…meat-fest!

Unlike Manna, the place we frequent up in LA, New Seoul is a self-serve buffet.  This is more convenient since there is no time wasted trying to flag down a waiter and put in an order for meat.  Also, New Seoul has a wider variety of choices than Manna’s all-you-can-eat menu.  I think the meat is better quality as well.  It is more expensive, though.  Since my parents always paid, I never got a look at the check but I’m guessing $20ish/pp for weekend lunch.
