Too Much Flavor

Michelle and I have been looking for a place to live recently. We’ve decided on living on the West Side for a while and renting rather than jumping into a home in a gated community with a good school district. We’re not even thirty yet!

Yesterday we stopped around the Culver City area to look around, and we like it. Well, what we really like is happy hour in Downtown Culver City.

Korean tacos. This is a new one at Gyenari. Someone’s still trying to ride the Kogi train (truck?).

After a quick snack and a few drinks, we wanted another Kogi tie in, so we decided on dinner with some friends at Chego.

Tiny’s Prime Rib Rice Bowl.

One Chubby Pork Belly Bowl.

Buttered Kimchi Chow with added pork belly.

These bowls are actually quite large. It’s a solid meal with tons of flavor, possibly too much flavor. Is there such a thing? I feel like when eating this it was as if someone turned the amp to eleven while walking out of a strip club at 7:30 AM and realizing the sun is out, shining straight into your face. I bet with a pot of rice, I can stretch this into three large meals still full of flavor.
