Living on the west side of Los Angeles, I find myself regularly heading downtown and even further east to try new restaurants. But the west side is also worthy of exploration and one of those places is Margot, a rooftop restaurant located at The Platform project in Culver City.
A friend invited me to dinner and selected Margot. I had not heard of it and had only been to The Platform once before. With all of the construction in the area, it had not been on my radar. But, now it is and I have already been a few times.
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.
