What do Koreans do on their birthday? Eat at an AYCE (all-you-can-eat) meat buffet. I am obviously a vegetarian but I chose to do AYCE because I know it’s cheap, the rest of my family loves meat, and the restaurant we went to is a close friend of my dad’s. They’ve been friends for over 15 years and every time we dine at his establishment, he always gives us the best cut of meat. Not that he doesn’t serve great meat to everyone else. : P He sends us plates and plates of meat that he doesn’t serve to the rest of his patrons.
If you guys get the chance, please try to visit Mapo BBQ. I’ve been to many Korean BBQ restaurants but he truly serves the best cuts of meat. He cuts all the meat plate by plate as you order and he makes sure to come by every table. And the soda is free on Monday-Wednesday! : )
My birthday cake and pastries were from King’s Hawaiian. I am lucky to have this bakery/restaurant in my neighborhood!
King’s Hawaiian Bakery & Restaurant opened its doors on Sepulveda Boulevard in Torrance in 1988 and quickly became a landmark for Hawaiians living on the mainland. The irresistible Hawaiian food coupled with the warm “Aloha Spirit” that is the trademark of this family-owned business has made King’s Hawaiian Restaurant a gathering place for families and friends throughout Southern California.
King’s Hawaiian Restaurant offers a variety of Hawaiian and Classic American dishes, as well as attractive new foods that are our connection to the new Hawaii. In addition, our retail bakery is one of the highest volume bakeries in the state.
