THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Chego Restaurant Review

: Head here to see the future of Korean cooking in LA. Roy Choi, the chef behind the Kogi Korean BBQ-To-Go food truck, is the executive chef of this tiny counter-service restaurant. Its nondescript location, in a strip mall between Culver City and the 10 Freeway, hasn’t kept hipsters and foodsters away. For easier seating, go before 6:30 p.m. or after 8:30 p.m. The grilling happens not at the tables but in the kitchen, and grilled meats find their way into dishes you won’t find elsewhere, such as Sour Cream Hen House (grilled chicken bowl with fried egg, sour cream sambal, Thai basil and red jalapeño) and chili-rubbed prime rib, or an appetizer of 3PM Meatballs (fried Korean-style with sesame and polenta). Get the sriracha bar for dessert---if they haven’t run out of that day’s supply---or a dense, cinnamon-infused chocolate tres leches. The atmosphere brings hip-hop beats to ’80s torch songs, long, communal tables, paper containers (the better for takeout), gray-green walls and shelves laden with knick-knacks. Note: Choi’s other restaurant in Culver City, A-Frame, is also a worthy scene, but it’s more fusion than Korean.
