The kings of Korean BBQ in LA (Kang Ho Baekjeong) have opened a new restaurant in Ktown and we’ll tell you this - it’s fancy as sh*t. But also pretty good. Located next door to that Denny’s on Wilshire you go to after seeing shows at the Wiltern, Terra Cotta is big and beautiful (there are glass chandeliers), with a menu that can best be described as fancy American-Korean fusion. Think hamachi with wasabi slaw, uni fried rice, and a really excellent steak tartare.
