Korean BBQ has come to the westside! Located in Culver City, on Main Street next to The Wallace, Hanjip Korean BBQ is the result of partners Stephane Bombet (Terrine, Viviane) and Francois Renaud (Terrine) and Chef Chris Oh (Seoul Sausage). Hanjip Inside, the decor is modern and eye catching. The walls, as well as the ventilation systems above each table, are covered with black and white geometric lines. Hanjip Interior Korean BBQ is meant to be shared with friends. While you can sit at a table for two or four people, the booths and round tables in the center are better for parties of six. With the amount of food you will probably eat, the bigger the group, the better! As soon as we sat, we were served an array of banchan. Fish cakes, kim chi, potato salad, spicy cucumber and bean sprouts are some of the banchan. The standout was the crispy octopus banchan.
Think Korean BBQ, think meat. As carnivores, nothing satisfies a meat craving like a night out for Korean BBQ. But, if you have to watch your cholesterol, a night out for Korean BBQ is probably not on the top of your list. Til now! Now you can enjoy all the Korean BBQ you want with less worry. Why? Star King BBQ in Los Angeles is not your everyday Korean BBQ. Owner Jackie Yoo is a second generation veteran of the meat business. Less than a year ago, while looking for a high quality meat, she introduced Piemontese beef to the restaurant. The only Korean BBQ place to serve Piemontese beef, she is taking it to the next level. Piemontese beef comes from cows originally from the Northeast of Italy, in the Piedmont region. Now bred in Nebraska, what sets them apart from other breeds of cattle is that it is a leaner meat that is more tender and full of flavor without the high levels of cholesterol or calories. The cows are vegetarian-fed, hormone-free and antibiotic-free. There is also a mutation of a the myostatin gene which results in a 14% increase in muscle mass, compared to Angus beef, resulting in a cow that builds muscle with little fat.
