Carnivore

The Surrogate Valentine/Daylight Savings Double Feature is tonight so I gathered together with my cast/crew for a day-before dinner at Feng Mao Lamb Kebab.

“I thought you were a vegan,” Mike said.

Uh….nope! I’ve been wanting to try this place for a while now, just never had a group big enough to go in on a meat fest with me. We took up half the place!

It’s in Koreatown, so we started off with complimentary banchan

…and egg custard…

…I devoured 2 plates that looked like this while going over the menu.

As you can see, this place is also Chinese; I spoke in broken Mandarin with the waitress, then gave up. Deciding on food for a huge group frightens me!

Gary took over the ordering, and also the BBQ duties…

…though we got a lot of help from the servers.

So. Much. Meat!

I lost count of how many I had. At least a dozen. Maybe 15?

Mostly mutton, dipped in cumin seasoning. But plenty of pork + beef soaked in sauce…

IMG_9598

…and chicken, straight up!

In addition to all of those skewers, I ate 3 pieces of fried prawns in mayo with walnuts…

…and probably 4 pieces of this fried salted…cod? Pork? I can’t remember anymore!

More double fried something was also consumed…

…in addition to Ma Po Tofu. Which also had meat.

There were vegetarian skewer options too, I just didn’t have any…

IMG_9593

…though I did try some of Abe’s bok choy with shrooms.

God, the food was really good. I don’t know how, but we conquered all of it!

Probably best not to wear cashmere, like I did. Julius is gonna be obsessed with this sweater!

Feng Mao Lamb Kebab (I just love saying that) is within walking distance of one of LAAPFF’s theaters, CGV Cinemas. We wobbled over to the 9:30pm screening of Viette

…written/directed by and starring one of our very talented dinner dates, Mye.  An intense, important, incredibly powerful and personal movie.  A lot to digest last night.

    That place looks amazing – have to try it! I love how Korean restaurants always bring you a ton of food before you even get your food. The perfect way to celebrate Eat What You Want Day! 🙂

    Holy bonkers BBQ! Can I be a crew member on your next film? I just want to join for the get together meals! I will happily carry shit around and take out the trash for this meal. 😉

    I haven’t had a nice hearty meat feast in ages – it was definitely a mouth-watering spread! Does Feng Mao need to update their pics for the menu? Yours would be perfect!!
