Oo-kook Korean BBQ and Coffee

All You Can Eat BBQ and Heyri Coffee

Before the weather completely changes and my tastebuds switches to soups I visited another Korean BBQ restaurant in Koreatown.  The most recent restaurant is a little different as it’s not located directly on Wilshire Blvd.  Oo-Kook specializes in an all you can eat Korean BBQ, with various servings of banchan.

I met up with my friend again whom I met while we lived in South Korea.  She said I should try another restaurant beside our usual hang-out at BCD Tofu House.  We met at noon at Oo-kook to eat, catch-up and discuss our returning to Korea.

The restaurant allows three servings per order which include an order of white rice, and or cheese corn.  We started off with three of the most popular choices of meat which includes pork belly, beef steak, and marinated rib.

The beef steak was my favorite out of the different meat options that we sampled.   It costs $24.99 per person for the all you can eat menu and is well worth the price and service.

*Tip: The restaurant offers valet parking and there’s two-hour metered street parking nearby.  If you would like to visit Oo-Kook, the restaurant is located at 3385 W 8th St, Los Angeles, CA 90005 or call (213) 385-5665 for more information.

After consuming so much meat and vegetables we decided to go to a nearby coffee house.

The inside of the restaurant looks cozy and comfortable.  There was plenty of seating and I was surprised the coffee house offered lunch menu items as well as dessert.

We choose outside seating as it was a nice day and the Coffee House offered covered patio seating.  *Tip: There are a smoking area and non-smoking area available for customers.  I choose the standard iced americano and my friend choose the sweet potato latte.

I tried my friends’ sweet potato latte and I thought it had a creamy texture and the sweet potato flavor wasn’t overpowering.  The real attraction here is the outdoor seating location.  It allowed for friendly conversation in a relaxed atmosphere.  The next time I go back to this restaurant I want to try the Bingsu because it looked really yummy.

In addition to street parking, Heyri also offers valet parking for two dollars.  Heyri Coffee House is located at 755 S Hobart Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90005.  To find out more information visit Heyri Coffee House or call (213) 389-6138.
