Smokin' Meat.

I love some delicious Korean BBQ, luckily for me LA's Korea Town is literally down the street from me.  Thank you Vermont!  East side, what?!  My favorite Korean BBQ spot is definitely Park's BBQ.  The restaurant has a solid, modern vibe and it's a little pricey, but the meat selection is by far the best quality.  The banchan selection is amazing too.  Banchan refers to the little plates of appetizers that are served along with the meat in Korean BBQ restaurants. 

We were having dinner with my parents last Friday, and wanted to take them to Korean BBQ, but didn't want quite as fancy a restaurant as Park's- so we chose to go with the smokier, more rustic, Soot Bull Jeep.
It doesn't look like much from the outside, but I never let the exterior of a restaurant deter me from going for it.

Van had been here once before and warned us that we will come out of the restaurant smelling like BBQ smoke.  Ha. Loved it.
Unfortunately my poor Dad was the one who got the most smoked out...smoke follows beauty, right?
Below are my lovely parents- celebrating their 34th wedding anniversary today. <3
Delicious banchan selection and cooking proteins: we chose short ribs, squid and pork!

My favorite was probably the short ribs- but the squid was a close second. 
Happy M and confused V.
Delicious.  Definitely experienced a meat-coma afterwards, but so worth it, once in a while.  Seriously, I'm so close to Korea Town- I'm always down for BBQ.
