That I need to try more foods from different places. So with that in mind and being a birthday celebration, we went out for my second round of Korean BBQ. My first time was a nice but late meal in Tokyo.
This second time was much closer to home. Stilla Korean BBQ in Gardena, Calif. to be exact. Not hard to find.
With that sign and rather decorative building.
Inside was even nicer.
So a bit of Dassai sake and the introduction of condiments and the lighting of the grill, we were about to be served a feast!
First they brought out side dishes of potatoes, rice noodles and green salad.
Then kimchee and glass noodles with mayo, sort of a slaw salad.
And then even more dishes! Spicy pickles, a bit of vegetables and a bean sprout dish. I had no idea we would get all this with just getting their BBQ. There was also a rather spicy vegetable soup.
Also included was this bubbling hot chawanmushi dish. There was so much steam from it all my photos of it look foggy.
But what about the BBQ? Well there was very nice shrimp with a bit of cantaloupe.
Although their Sweet Teriyaki Chicken was the crowd pleasure of the night.
