Looks like you have an awesome week ahead of you! Where is your fav place for kalbi?


Hi Soo - If you're talking straight up K BBQ Kalbi, it's usually Buga. Anything house.


mmm plate lunch week :) like it.

Soo Hom

I forget to be specific. Where is your fav place to get Hawaiian style kalbi?


Hi Kat - It's about time I did this again.

Hi Soo - Try this one on for size:
Marinade - enough for 4-5 pounds of ribs
1 Cup Soy Sauce
3/4 Cup Sugar
1/3 Cup Malt Syrup
1/4 Cup Rice Wine - I used Sake
4 Cloves of Garlic
4 Stalks Green Onion
1 Kiwi or 1/3 Asian Pear
1-2 Tb Sesame Oil
- Roughly chop garlic, fruit, and green onion and place in a blender.
- Add soy sauce, sugar, and malt syrup and blend.
- Add rice wine and sesame oil, and briefly blend.
- Taste and adjust flavor.
- Marinade ribs at least 6 hours, but no more than 16.

My house.....


Hi Kirk, a few spot names trigger memories of my first year moving down to san diego (in 2000) and Kealani's in Encinitas is definitely one of them, ha. Did you notice if their rice was still mushy? Aside from it usually enjoyed my visits there.


Island Café was also recently listed in the NYT 36 hours travel feature for San Diego


Hi Dennis - That's SOP for them!

That's interesting Mike....really interesting.


Thanks for the recipe!


It's my pleasure Soo. Think of it as a starting point and adjust to your taste. I'd prefer you grill it over hardwood charcoal as well. Good luck!
