Dinner Diaries: E!ght Korean BBQ

Get ready for a trip to K-Town to enjoy the delights of Korean BBQ at E!ght Korean BBQ, which has been rocking tastebuds since 2008.

There are four combo packages available for dinner, which we highly recommend. they are structured like this:

Combo A – 8 flavors pork belly combo

8 flavors pork belly • seafood soybean stew

kimchi fried rice • kimchi • bean sprouts • mixed salad • assorted banchan

Combo B – all pork combo

​flower pork belly • thinly sliced pork belly • pork cheek shoulder

• garlic pork shoulder

kimchi pork stew • kimchi fried rice • kimchi • bean sprouts • mixed salad • assorted banchan

Combo C – prime beef and pork combo

prime beef brisket • marinated beef galbi bulgogi

• flower pork belly • thinly sliced pork belly

kimchi pork stew • kimchi fried rice • kimchi • bean sprouts • mixed salad • assorted banchan

Combo D / deluxe beef and pork combo

prime ribeye • prime beef brisket • prime korean style

boneless rib • beef tongue • mugifuji pork belly • pork cheek

kimchi pork stew • kimchi fried rice • kimchi • bean sprouts 

• mixed salad • assorted banchan

For our review we went with combo A and the amount of food is fantastic. Talk about a bargain for your meal. E!ight Korean BBQ recommends combo A for 2-3 people, but we have to say we can easily see 4 people tackle this combo like pros with the amount of food available for you. The meat is so well seasoned and juicy it melts in your mouth. With eight different flavor experiences this is one combo that really lives up to E!ght’s namesake.

We couldn’t help ourselves and also ordered a side of their steamed egg and cheese. WOW. Omlette lovers come gather. This is the fluffiest, cheesiest omlette we have ever taken a bite of. We felt ourselves get emotional over its cheesy, eggy perfection.

Finally with most of us rusticating at home, using Covid-19 safety protocols it is nice to know you should make reservations in advance, and masks are required when you’re not seated and eating. That being said, E!ght Korean BBQ has a drink special you just can’t miss. In April from Wed-Sun once your purchase $25 in food products enjoying Cass lager or Jinro Soju is only $1 per person!! What!! Thats right $1. There is a 45min time-limit to the amount of alcohol consumed, but you can order more for just a couple bucks. In May the special changes to $1 on Sun/Wed/Thurs only with Fri and Sat being $5. With the insane drink prices in LA we still see this as a steal.
