Back in December, DTLAexplorer.com first told you about a new restaurant called Eko Eats opening on 6th Street in Downtown Los Angeles… well, it’s now open and serving up some delicious chef-designed Korean inspired food. If this place is not on the top of your “New Restaurants I Must Try” list, add it immediately.
The Korean Fried Chicken & Bibimbap ($11.85) is a bowl of organic steamed rice with 10 vegetables with your choice of white or brown rice. For an additional $1.35 I added a pasture raised slow cooked egg. It’s served with a side of their Korean fried chicken with regular or spicy glaze. The bowl was packed with flavor and the fried chicken was delicious.
The Kimchi Fried Rice ($10.95 large) is organic brown rice, sautéed kimchi, burdock, kale, dried radish and scallion garnish with chicken jangjorim (tamari glazed chicken). We added the slow cooked egg to this dish too. It was enjoyably spicy (not crazy hot), flavorful and delicious.
We would highly recommend both of the above dishes, but don’t overlook the Chicken Jook. It’s organic rice porridge made with chicken bone broth, garnished with chicken, sautéed Asian greens, scallions and housemade sambal. It comes in two sizes ($6.95 small or $8.95 large). This is the ultimate comfort food. OMG… so good.
All of their meals are made with the highest-quality, organic, non-GMO ingredients whenever possible… and you can taste it. This is clean delicious eating. Eko Eats is open for lunch and dinner, and they also deliver within walking distance. They also offer a catering menu, perfect for anyone who works in a DTLA office.
