THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Tahoe Galbi Restaurant Restaurant Review

: When we eat at Tahoe Galbi, we usually steer clear of the grill tables in its cavernous, contemporary central dining space, flanked on either side by private rooms that expand or contract in size with folding screens. Instead, we head for the enclosed terrace along the building's western side, where tables gaze out through large windows onto a walled garden lined with waterfalls, filling the room with refreshing breezes and drowning the traffic noise from Wilshire Boulevard. Here, we can almost imagine we're in a Korean country inn as we tuck into huge portions of short ribs, pork belly, Angus Prime sirloin steak, beef brisket, squid and black tiger prawns, all cooked over a hardwood charcoal fire in the center of each table. Just as impressive is the array of accompaniments, from steaming glasses of rich, soothing barley tea to a wide assortment of cooked and pickled vegetable sides, to a small cup of the sweet Korean rice drink called sikhye, sipped to end the meal.
