The Los Angeles food-truck god, author, and skateboarding enthusiast (!) Roy Choi has opened his newest culinary venture in Koreatown this month: POT. The renowned Korean-American chef breaks it all down in this ABC News interview, detailing the inspiration behind the menu and what sets POT apart from his other spots.
Chef Choi is a master of soulful fusion. Focused on Korean cuisine, Choi typically blends disparate flavors to breathtaking effect (hello, “Hot-Buttered Kimchee Chow”). For example, POT primarily features inventive hot pot creations – um, a corned beef hash hot pot mixed with SPAM? – but the menu also includes funky items like the “BEEP BEEP”: A rice bowl with creamy dynamite uni atop the crisped rice.
POT is at the Line Hotel,
3515 Wilshire Blvd.
