Korean BBQ for Passover

Yesterday was a beautiful day. It was so lovely outside that I didn't come home or sit near a computer for over 12 hours, which meant that when I got home, it was too late to blog. I know you all were tearing your hair out, thinking "Why are there no new blog posts? Why, God, why?" But I can only hope you all made it through unscathed.

One of the things I did during my lovely day was eat Korean BBQ with my friend Rich! I've been wanting to check out Don's Bogam BBQ & Wine Bar in Koreatown. It's one of those cool places where you cook your meat on a grill in the middle of your table. So I checked to make sure that Korean BBQ was semi-kosher for passover (Rich is observing, not me), and when he signed off on it, away we went.

We ordered the Tuna in Soy Wash and the Beef Short Ribs Marinated in Our Special Spicy Sauce. First came the tuna:

It was nice and fresh and pink. It looked good enough to eat raw......But then they turned up the heat!

Check out the fire! I know it's blurry, but I though the fire was really cool. They have a little vacuum up top that sucks the flames up so that they don't hit you if there's a sudden gust of wind. That would probably be a bad business practice. Burn victims good at all. Here's Rich enjoying a piece of tuna.

See how happy he looks? That's because the food is so good. We had the beef next.

It's so pretty! The sauce was great too. Spicy, but not too spicy. I ripped up bits of lettuce and wrapped the meat in it, like a mini Korean Atkins taco. Delish!

The things we ordered came with an assortment of Korean appetizers. My two favorites? Scallion salad (amazing sweet dressing) and radish kimchi (it had a great bite to it).

It was all very good. I'd recommend it. It's fun and different and yummy. Expect some more posts this weekend! Enjoy!
