After visiting the best Korean BBQ places LA has to offer and then trying an AYCE (All you can eat) again, I’ve realized that you can’t go back.
The meat is just tastier when you’re paying more money for it.
Hae Jang Chon is a crazy popular AYCE spot (about $20 per person) so it’s not awful. I just found the meat to be tougher and less flavorful.
To be fair, we probably burned the crap out of the pork belly. It was my first time cooking it, and I’m sure we ruined it.
I really loved the BBQ Beef however, it had a ton of flavor, was super tender and juicy and ended the meal on a positive note.
They also make you a kimchee fried rice at the end on your grill using the beef scrapings which was pretty tasty too. And fun to watch get made.
I would recommend this place if you’re into the most meat for your dollar bills, but just come with lowered expectations and you’ll be fine.
Or just drink a bunch and you won’t care.
