When it comes to All You Can Eat deals, the general rule is “quantity over quality.” But apparently TaeKwon 92 never got the memo. This spot in the San Gabriel Valley does three tiers of AYCE, and they don’t skimp on the high-end stuff. That means as much dry-aged ribeye and prime short rib as you can handle, plus fantastic spicy pork belly, brisket, bulgogi, shrimp, and octopus, and sides that definitely don’t feel like afterthoughts. The trade-off is that prices tend to be a bit higher (their top-of-the-line “Diamond” deal is $54), but TK92 is an equally good option for a la carte - we love the ribeye and marinated short rib. Plus, you get an (actually really good) ice cream sandwich at the end of your meal… and that’s pure class.
