Korean Short Ribs at Soyo-Kalbi

Thinly sliced short ribs cooked on a metal brazier is the best-loved Korean dish outside that country. Soyo is a rustic pub or “barstaurant” that serves them on a sizzling metal platter—beefy, funky with garlic and sesame oil, and never chewy like they can be in lesser Korean joints around Chinatown. $15, 7775 S. Rainbow Blvd., Suite 105, 897-7696.
