Corridor 109@Koreatown ★★★

Fantastic Modern Asian Tasting Menu Popup Experience. Reminds me of 3-Michellin-Star The Chef's Table at Brooklyn Fare in New York, where Chef Brian Baik worked at. Very hard to book - need to book at ticket release on Tock. We were able to book because a wait list just opened up. Amazing fresh seafood with a modern twist. We bought our own bottle of Riesling, and the restaurant complimented on our wine choice. It went very well with all the flavorful dishes. $195 per person. Corkage fee is $30. Totally worth it.

Urspace@Temple City ★★★

One of the Best Uni Pasta I have ever had. It's kind of pricey, but it's very creamy and yummy. The pasta is cooked in chicken broth, which makes it even more flavorful. Raw Egg and Black Caviar on top complete it. Definitely worth a try for Uni lovers. Uni Bun was nice. Lobster Benedict is pretty good too. Drinks can get pricey, but you get 15% off with Yelp check-in.
