3600 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA
One of my favorite cuts of meat offered in Korean BBQ is beef bulgogi; and so when noticed a place called simply, Bulgogi House, from driving up and down Wilshire Boulevard in Koreatown, I thought to myself that I should give them a try and see how good their BBQ is. After having a late dinner with a couple of friends, we were delighted as to tasty many of the marinated and non-marinated cuts of meat were here, and what was really interesting was that they weren't as busy as some of the other popular BBQ houses such as Road to Seoul, Tahoe Galbi, and even O Dae San. Ever since that night, I always wanted to go back. I originally scheduled an event here last Friday with Gay Foodies, but they lost my reservation, and we had to scramble elsewhere to grab a bite to eat. Well, I've decided to give it a try again this Friday, but with Pleasure Palate instead. This time, I've taken down the name of the person who took my reservation ("Ruby") just in case...
Bulgogi House offers 4 different types of combination BBQs to choose from; however, only Combos C & D are available during the evenings. Since there's only a difference of $3 between the 2 combos, we will order Combo D ($19.99), so that we can have a choice of any of the meats they offer -- 25 different choices, including beef rib eye, shrimp, squid and baby octopus! In addition, between 6:00pm and 9:00pm, it is their Happy Hour, and they offer a selection of beers and sake for sale at a substantially discounted price.
Yelp reviewers give Bulgogi House an average of 3.50 Stars out of 5 from over 220 reviews. You can read those reviews here: http://www.yelp.com/biz/bulgogi-house-los-angeles
The average cost per person is expected to be about $25 to $40, depending whether or not you order any beverages to go with your meal. As such, please bring at least $50 in CASH (small bills preferred) to settle your portion of the bill.
Parking is available in the lot behind the restaurant where the first 2 hours are FREE (I will find out how much parking after 2 hours). In addition, street parking is available. Remember to read the street signs for any parking restrictions.
Both the entrance to the parking and to the restaurant are off Kingsley Drive, just south of Wilshire Boulevard. We will meet inside the lobby of the restaurant about 5 to 10 minutes before our 7:00pm. As always, please call or text me if you arrive before I do, or are running late, or are lost. If you arrive before I do, reservations are under my last name, "Toy."
