Chego in Los Angeles, California

Buttered Kimchi Chow

On the suggestion of a comment posted recently, we stopped by here for lunch on the way from the airport to the hotel (3300 Overland Avenue, 287-0337). The interesting thing was that we saw a Kogi truck outside, and it was only then did I put the two together to realize that this shop was actually run by the Kogi people. I see.

And in many ways, it tasted similar, with a salty kimchi flavor pervading the dishes, in a good way. We wolfed down this tofu rice bowl with ease, and enjoyed the grilled romaine heart starter and Sriracha chocolate bar too (yep, a rice-based chocolate bar with a hint of Sriracha sauce, but without being spicy). Thanks for the tip!

I'm glad you liked Chego! I've never tried the tofu myself, but the pork belly is dynamite. Also, their burgers are almost a religious experience. I walked over there on Thursday (it's right around the corner from my house) and they told me they will be serving a whole new appetizer menu starting next month. I can't wait!
