Hae Jang Chon Korean BBQ Restaurant ~ Koreatown

1:57 PM PDT on May 20, 2010

One of the cheapest AYCE Korean BBQ places I've been too.  It's in a strip mall off 6th street and open til 2am which is always a plus.  19 items for $16.99 is a great deal plus they serve beer and soju.  Everything from pork shoulder to Korean beef to whole squid on a hot plate.  They start off with the kimchee (sour type) and bean sprouts cooking on the stone grill; then you just add the meats around and eat as much as you can.  They come around and clean the stone with shredded daichon so you don't get stuck with a bunch of burned meat.  The banchan (side dishes) are pretty decent; you get kimchi pancakes (a must for drinkers) and soybean paste soup.  The meal ends with kimchi fried rice they cook on the stone grill.  It's absolutely delicious.  However the last time I was here I was so stuffed I skipped the rice.

The service is OK.  I mean, it's AYCE so don't expect too much beyond a smile.  They try to cook the food for you but if you prefer to DIY you can just tell them or motion that you got it covered.  The English is spotty so alot of gestures and motions will get you what you want.  Plus they have the bells at the table to ring for more meat and beer.  I don't know if they take reservations but they are definitely packed so prepare to wait.  And like I said, open til 2am so it's definitely got my vote.
