Banchan, Bibimbap, Bulgogi and More at Koryo Korean BBQ Last Night in Glendale

Koryo Korean BBQ opened quietly in a Glendale strip mall about three months ago in a space previously occupied by two other Korean joints. From the outside you won't expect to find the modern design of the restaurant's interior -- but we have a feeling owners Billy and Christine Cho wouldn't have it any other way.

Last night the couple hosted a Korean BBQ feast for a small party of guests who experienced many of the offerings from the restaurant's menu. From banchan (side dishes like kimchi and marinated spinach) to sikhye (a traditional sweet rice beverage) the evening appealed to Korean cuisine experts and amateurs alike.
