All of Mr. Monkey's college friends are Korean. He's never explained why. (While we're at it, all of Mr. Monkey's high school friends are Jewish, and I don't know the reason for this either.)
But we're here today to talk about his college friends, who always take us to Korean barbecue places that I've never visited. Sometimes I wonder how all of these places survive.
We ate at Ssang Kogi Nara (3416 W. Washington Blvd., Los Angeles) with the college gang before going out to karaoke.
I spied no white people, although I think there were a couple of Latino folks. Good sign.
I didn't know what to make of sashimi at a BBQ joint, but I went with the flow.
