As a huge fan of Roy Choi’s ever-expanding restaurant empire, I was excited to finally try Pot at the Line Hotel in Koreatown. I wouldn’t by any means consider myself to have an extensive knowledge of Korean food, but I’m certainly a fan of the cuisine in general, and Pot’s approach felt like a very user-friendly, delicious crash course. Choi’s take on traditional-meets-Americanized Korean dishes covers a broad and creative spectrum, from pickled sea beans and kimchi, to a beautiful variety of meat and fish plates, to the restaurant’s namesake pots -- which vary in size from the 2-person “with a friend” to the 10-person “group love” -- containing everything from spam, to tofu, to rib-eye bulgogi, to braised pork neck. For my first meal, I opted to choose a large array of dishes from the “other things” portion of the menu (I’ll tackle the pots one by one during later visits!), sampling Choi’s incredible grilled vegetables (served with giant kitchen shears); poke; braised galbi; spicy squid; and – of course – the restaurant’s must-order Beep Beep uni with dynamite rice. Despite being stuffed after this large meal and a brioche ice cream sandwich, I still found room to try the famous Ritz Crack Candy Bar at the restaurant’s sister caFe in the hotel’s lobby, which was worth every gluttonously rich, crispy bite.
