Unlike at some Korean BBQ spots, you don’t have to cook your own food at Best Friend - probably for the best since their drinks are strong, which isn’t exactly a recipe for success with a hot grill. The menu is a little all over the place, and can only be described by “LA-meets-Korea-meets-Vegas” - which means things like A-Frame OG baby back ribs from the “LA Sh*t” part of the menu and a whole rack of lamb with kimchi chimichurri from the large-format section. There’s also a fully-functioning bodega you walk through to get to the dining room, and it’s where you should pick up a slushie to go as you leave.
