As much as I love the Asian food here in Los Angeles, there are two things that really bother me. First… why have all the great dim sum places in the SGV started to favor menus over over carts!? (Carts is the best part of dim sum, damnit!) And second, why is it that none of the all you can eat Korean food spots in K-Town are buffets? What does a short fat Jewish guy have to do to get a proper Korean buffet in this town!?
Now, I know what many of you will say (on both counts). “Wouldn’t you rather have food that’s made fresh?” As a matter of fact, I wouldn’t. I like the element of surprise in my dim sum, and the variety that you get on a great buffet. So when I heard that Hansong, “Best Beef” winner at this year’s Korean BBQ Cook-Off, was a proper all you can eat buffet in Koreatown I got pretty excited. And not even a $17 price tag could keep me from trying out this lunch. (Desperate times call for desperate measures people!)
