Tahoe Galbi, LA – Invite Me to Your BBQ Bash, Bourgie

tahoe galbi restaurant, koreatown, los angeles, ca
Grilling may be going the way of the genteel with mini Kobe beef burgers and pulled pork in lettuce cups as passed hors d’ouevre on the veranda, but there’s one sub-genre of barbecue that will always be rustic, no matter what kind of fancy geisha paint you put on its face.

Korean barbecue.

But before I get into how an entire day sipping strawberry mojitos poolside on a Sunday afternoon made me extraordinarily grateful that I carry a camera with me wherever I go to, uh, “remember,” let’s give away BBQ Bash: The Be-All, End-All Party Guide from Barefoot to Black Tie to…

no. 17, stuntman, and I swear it’s not just because his comment said that he’ll “never get enough delicious.”

Stuntman, daaah-ling, please drop me an email at sarah[at]thedeliciouslife[dot]com and share your mailing address with me so I can send a copy of BBQ Bash to you. Whether you invite me to your next BBQ Bash is up to you. No pressure. Not like I am giving you a book for my birthday and sending it to you at my shipping expense and all, but hey, if you want to just be all exclusive and private like that, fine.

Now, back to Korean barbecue…

I like Tahoe Galbi! Enough to have celebrated my birthday there last April with 40 people. ‘Twas delish.

OMG I love korean bbq. Everytime I go back home to Hawaii my parents always take me to this mom and pop korean restaurant. The meat is always seasoned perfectly with lots of garlic and miso paste. My boyfriend tried it for the first time and he loved it. Now I have to clean the drool off my laptop.

YUMMMMMMMM. We love BBQ. Our favorite in Ktown is Gui Rim though on 6th. Tahoe is probably #2 – Great Picture!

I can’t believe that in all these years I had never been to tahoe until I saw it in your post. The galbee was awesome, the tongue was sliced too thick, the brisket too thin, the pork was great, the banchan fresh. I never thought I’d actually like a k-town all you can eat bbq place. Thanks for the tip hot asian lady!

mmmm….korean barbecue . . .

By the way, Sarah, shouldn’t your guest writer garner at least one of these cookbooks you’re giving away? That BBQ one sounds about right. Maybe I need to write a few more posts for you to rate . . . ;)

Gui Rim and Tahoe are both good, just a little different. You pay a little more at Tahoe for the presentation and nicer digs. Out-of-town guests new to Kfood I’ll take to Tahoe. Grubbing with local friends… Gui Rim if we want to eat a lot. Their all-you-can-eat price isn’t quite worth it otherwise. There are plenty of other smaller places that are tasty. :)

Yummm! I love Korean barbecue. The problem is, I love it too much! I can’t stop eating it, even though I’m stuffed to the gills. So I have to really limit Korean barbecue to just a few times a year.

I haven’t indulged in Korean bbq for a while, I think I’m due for a binge. I’ve had Tahoe and it’s one of the better ones out there.
