There are more reasons to head to Hanjip Korean Barbecue, as if you needed an excuse. Open less than a year, the upscale Korean barbecue restaurant in Culver City has made a few changes and additions.
Since opening, the menu has become a bit more succinct. The new menu offers a "how to Korean barbecue" at the top of the page. There are two platters offered, either beef or pork and either large or small.
The marinated short rib is the signature dish and this, as well as other meats (pork, beef, octopus) are available a la carte as well. The tomahawk steak for $150 is still available but the pricey Spanish prawns are gone.
Reno has not been on my radar for years, not since a college ski trip that had us based in Reno and skiing in Tahoe. Living in Los Angeles, a common weekend getaway is to Las Vegas. So, an invite to a wine event in Reno was a great excuse to head to "the biggest little city", Reno, Nevada.
The event was at the Atlantis Casino Resort and Spa in Reno where I stayed for the weekend. While I did go out and explore the burgeoning food scene of Reno (a story about this is coming soon), I spent most of the weekend at the five star Atlantis Casino Resort and Spa, located a few minutes from downtown Reno.
I checked into my room which overlooked the city of Reno. My spacious room had all the key amenities but best of all, a super-comfortable bed.
If you like meat, then Fogo de Chao might just be paradise. Originally from Brazil, there are now 27 restaurants in the United States with the newest location open in downtown Los Angeles. Located at 8th at Figueroa, the it took over the space that was formerly Roy's. It is a vast open space but after a meal here, you might feel like you need all that room to roll yourself out the door.
Stop at the bar for a drink before heading to your table and get in the Brazilian mood with a fresh and tart Caipirinha.
