  • 500$ for a night? Is it really that expensive?

  • Lol the girl said she wishes there was places like this in la. She must have never been to ktown la lmao.

  • 4:48 that what she said.

  • What kind of cheese on that chicken, I wonder...

  • 5:30 this is where Korean Boy Band goes after their Kpop days are over.

  • There spicy cheesy chicken is so yummy

  • Omg I live so close to there

  • Beautiful !

  • Your wife is 4' tall? Forget about turnover on the tables. $500 for 4 people lets do this everyday.

  • is he really tall or is she really short or both

  • I went here 2 months ago it was pretty good, not amazing

  • Forgot to have this and I jus went to Chicago... dammit

  • Hey Matt! Check out Soho Cafe In Philadelphia, PA!!

  • Oh my lord she's so tiny!!!!!

  • What a great video! The food looks amazing!

  • Matt is all sorts of right -- direct teleportation to Seoul as soon as one opens Dancen's door. Love this place!

  • How similar is this to 딱갈비?

  • Damn I feel like this spot is going to blow up now

  • I love this new concept!

  • 2 thumbs up....I do believe she is Filipina...

  • anybody know the name of this place?

  • Noooooo!!! This spot was a secret. Soo good

  • Gizzards aren't the "shithole" of the chicken. It's not at the butt end of the bird. That would be the pygostyle (commonly: "parson's nose") . Gizzard acts like a food mill, grinding up food to help the stomach with digestion hence it's tough/muscular texture.

    • Came to say this. They have no clue what they’re talking about

  • Spicy chicarrones?! OMG, I'm so there!

  • It ain't easy eating ass. :/

  • shes cute! well done! come back and show us more LA tho

  • You are....MARRIED?! *top 10 anime betrayals/surprises*

  • It's the same damn pepper mixture.

  • Nice 👍🏻 food 🥘

  • Rochelle is so cute!

  • finally not another bland hot pot video

  • I went there very often since it's literally next-door for 5 minutes walking, food is great and spicy. The only complain is I asked water for freaking hour and I didn't get it lul.

  • Squid and octopus are two under rated foods

  • The height difference is adorable.

  • Eater why you are not fat

  • this looks so delicious! I want some of that fire chicken!

  • I wish you'd have played that flame clip a couple dozen more times.

  • Stupidest series of this channel yet

  • Spicy Korean Fried Chicken is my life! I crave it almost every day!

  • Matt, this is something that I always found strange about Torrance - I grew up there (don't live there anymore), and a good portion of my classmates at West were first and second generation Korean-Americans. That said, like your wife mentioned, there are not a ton of Korean restaurants in Torrance. I mean, I'd love to see episodes from Eater about the amazing Japanese restaurants in Torrance, but your wife is absolutely right.

  • hey how about starting a new show on indian cuisine similar to k-town? i mean we got such a variety of dishes but all i see is dosa and butter chicken. indian food is much more than that.

    • that's where you are wrong. infact it's the exact opposite. most of the African and Caribbean dishes are inspired from indian dishes as indian people were brought to these countries by the British.

    • Idian food is poor overall in my opinion its based off african receps with curry slathered on it but its good

    • just a random guy You're better off doing that in somewhere like the UK. Indian food is pretty poor in America.

  • Is she Filipina? She looks like a pinay to be honest

    • yes, Rochelle is Filipina!

    • Yes she is. He mentioned it in his Instagram.

    • IKR. She said chicharon too so I guess she is.

  • Wait he has a Filipino wife?

    • Filipino Man yes

  • Did i hear the wife saying "wish there was a place in LA like this"?

  • Got to try this place! Will pass on the buttholes.

    • Well, I guess if I could eat chitterlings (wayyyyy back in the day) I can try a different butthole lol

    • Hey don’t knock the buttholes till you try the buttholes.

    • they're pretty good!

  • Wonderfully done Matt

  • Blessed!!!! I wanna try! ❤️❤️❤️🍜🍜🍜👀👀👀

  • Is he freakishly tall or is she really little

    • Yes

    • I am about six feet and she is about a foot shorter than me...

  • It's interesting how far apart are Korea and Spain and how much both share food wise; fried pork skin, octopus and squid, hearty stews. So many "concepts" are basically the same.

    • okay :) thanks for the answer!

    • It's close to catalan, I guess google can help with the basics. Spain has a lot of dialects, mostly in the coastal areas and the isles, but if you know spanish you'll have no problem at all traveling around the country.

    • I wish i could visit Spain someday.. Im learning Spanish too😂 but do I have to speak valencian to travel around the region?

    • I recently did learn that is a blood sausage in korea too, there are some all around the globe, that's another uncommon dish shared.

    • in korea its called Nurungji :)

  • I love Korean food, the problem is in my area, there are no good Korean Restaurants. It's great to be able to watch such a great channel like this. I think this video is one of the best you've done. Great job!!!! Oh, I'm spoiled as I lived in South Korea for two years, 1978 to 1979 then again 1989 to 1990. Wonderful food! Jon

  • Your wife is very sweet, Matt.

  • If I could afford it, I'd travel to Chicago just to eat at this restaurant.

  • FIRST CAUSE IM LAVAR AND BIG BALLERS ALWAYS COME FIRST

  • For some reason, I only like the asian hosts on Eater. And the You Can Do This guy.

  • youre so cute together guys!!!!!

  • Noice

  • 😱😱😱😱😍
