I usually find the offerings at these ethnic food fests to be sub-par, but this cook-off has 10 pretty solid restaurants competing for the barbecue bragging rights of Koreatown, so I think I'll brave the heat and head for KTown to check out this event.
Stop me if it's already been hyped here, but it's Saturday, Aug 8, from noon to 8 p.m. at the northwest corner of Vermont and Sixth St. in the heart of Koreatown. Details: http://bit.ly/KAC-BBQ
LA Weekly's Jonathan Gold, KCRW's Evan Kleiman and LAT's Russ Parson's will be the judges, so the 10 restaurants vying for the title of Best BBQ in KTown better bring their "A" game and their nastiest kimchi.
The flackage promo-ing this benefit for the Korean American Coalition smacks of Tofu Festival's of the recent past, and I'm a tad skeptical. But I LOVE KOREAN BBQ! so I will be there.
