Hong's Galbi

3132 W. Olympic Blvd.
Los Angeles, California
Hong's Galbi feels like a family affair, with mom and aunties cooking and serving and babying customers, explaining how to mix their soybean-sprout rice (bean sprouts, stir fried beef, green onions and rice). Gochujang-marinated pork ribs are the namesake specialty of the house. Order any of the combos at Hong Galbi and you can't go wrong. Banchan offerings are basic, but the menu prices and portions are value-oriented. Remember, there's no such thing as free banchan — they're factored into the menu prices.
