Kang Hodong BaekJeong! Korean BBQ!

  • Jun 1, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Do you like meat or Korean Movie stars or how bout both then Kang Hodong Baekjeong is the spot. Rumor has it that the name is after a famous Korean Celebrity. They say he's laying low due to some scandal. Maybe he's hiding out in the restaurant! Lets find out! Ha Ha!

Was turned on to this place by a friend and would love to experience it with you all. The reviews are looking good for the place and place is really packed on the weekends a good sign. Just loving the reviews.

“My eyes were gleaming and my nostrils were flaring with joy. I could have cried out of happiness, haha. Instead, I sat down and helped put meat on the grill...while salivating...trying not to look like I cared so darn much about all this glorious meat.” By an Elite Yelp reviewer in Irvine, CA

Keep on hearing about the good service, “Service was outstanding and our waiter was almost overly apologetic.
Us: "thank you"
Him: "No no no, I'm so sorry that I didn't get it out sooner"
Us: ..... “ By another Elite reviewer on yelp

spot seems to have a nice casual ambiance and bustling with life, I like that about Korean BBQ, its about enjoying and loving life right? “The quality of meat was pretty good. The place is loud and bustling...great ambiance for Korean BBQ.” by another elite reviewer.

“Service was very good. Aunty(ajumma) made sure we were cooking all meat right way. All staff kept checking table constantly. (They changed grill five times!)
Good food, good service. What else could I ask more!” by another Yelp reviewer

“The pork belly and pork butt were awesome. Good quality, generous portions. We even cooked the pieces a bit crispier than usual and it was still juicy and soft. It was fantastic with the injeolmi ddeok powder or konggaru (?). “ by Yelp reviewer

“ Their appetizers where all good. I specially liked the scrambled egg, which was cooked in the side of the grill. I also like that they have different "Grill" for different kind of beef cuts. “

Prices seemed reasonable based on what you get, “We ordered the pork combo ($40) and it came with:
Pork neck, Pork butt, marinated short ribs OR marinated thinly sliced pork belly.
- I think all were good, definitely this combo is good enough for 2-3 people. “ Yelp reviewer

    Looks like clubbing/dancing got cancelled. Me and my friends are planning on going to visit a club in Santa Monica afterwards. Email if u interested. I have room for 2 or 3 ppl.

  • Jay

    Maybe we'll do the clubbing and karaoke some other time. So for now we'll just plan for dinner and decide on something afterwards. So please disregard the confirmations for clubbing and karaoke. BUT GIVEN THE VERY LIMITED SEATING FOR THIS RESTAURANT, YOU NEED TO CONFIRM EITHER IN YOUR RSVP OR BY PHONE CALL. If not, you will be replaced by someone else on the waiting list. Don't say you haven't been warned so please do not delay any longer.

    Everyone, I am helping out to making reservations at the Vibe Club and Bobo's Karaoke afterwards. I need confirmations NOW from each of you if you haven't already done so. Otherwise, you may not be able to join us or you may have to pay more to sit separately. Also, we need a firm count for who can definitely make it on time for dinner since this place gets really packed. SO RSVP YOUR CONFIRMATIONS NOW PLEASE!

    Vibe=yes/no
    Karaoke=yes/no
    By 5 PM Wednesday I need to clean out the going list and move waiting up. Karaoke will be at a great spot called BoBo's. Never had a bad time there.

    Cost for vibe is $40 guys, $20 gals

    So is it next week then? In the comments Tony the host says its May 25th (today) so its very unclear, although there are conflicting dates. Also body description says May 25 but title says Jun 1? Wth? Nobody responded and I'm here but don't see anyone so leaving now.

    Hi I'm a little confused. By the description I thought it was today then reading the comments and seeing the title it says next week. Also some comments say today. Is it today or next week? On my way now just in case

    May 25, 2012

  • Jay

    Been there several times and food is very good except spiced galbi. Also agreed service is very good. The price is a bit high ended for Korean BBQ place. It is unlikely to find Korean comedian though would love to join in, except I have a previous obligation to visit museum with friends. If allowed, will join you a bit later.
