We tried out the LA Galbi at Hoodadak, Fusionopolis, and here is the review of how we find it.
First of all, what is LA Galbi? It is actually a flanken cut, features cut bones peeking out along the long edge. It was developed by Korean immigrants in Los Angeles to accommodate the thinner rib-eye cut preferred by American butchers (We Googled this ^^).
At $25 and with GST and service charge it was $29.42, we got a bowl of rice, seaweed soup, and a plate of beef. On the menu, it was shown as Rice with soup with Lettuce, 180g beef.
We wondered where the lettuce went….
Nevertheless, the rice came mushy and not really nice, and the seaweed soup was what it was suppose to taste. The beef tasted really good. Sweet and savoury, well caramelized and lots of fats around tender flesh.
The kimchi, seaweed sides that came with were decent and what you would expect in any Korean eateries. There were 6 pieces of beef and at almost $30, it wasn’t exactly what we will consider worth your buck.
Their LA Galbi may not be worth spending on, but they do have other selections that seem quite good. Having said that, the lunch crowd during weekdays are huge, so do prepare to wait for a table.
