With the City of Angels boasting the largest Korean population outside of Asia, bulgogi and bibimbap are as ubiquitous as pot roast and potatoes—and ten times more delicious. Korean barbecue showcases hot, sweet, smoky flavors that we can't get enough of, and tomorrow, the best in the business are coming together for the second annual Korean BBQ Cook-Off. Carnivores would be silly not to make a pilgrimage to this meaty Mecca. For just $5, you'll get access to a smorgasbord of sizzling short ribs, pork belly, and fusion fare like Korean burgers and hot dogs. If that isn't enough incentive, Scoops will be serving up their idiosyncratic ice creams, and Pulitzer-winning food critic Jonathan Gold will be judging the Cook-Off. Our only words of wisdom? Wear stretch pants.
Saturday, August 7, 12:00 p.m - 8:00 p.m. Cook-off at 5 p.m. Upper Parking Lot, 3600 Wilshire Boulevard (between Kingsley Drive and Harvard Boulevard); no phone.
