Kimchi spam bowl at Chego
It's all about the rice bowls at Chego, Roy Choi's popular comfort food spot inside Far East Plaza. Head here for lunch or dinner, where you'll find dishes like the kimchi spam bowl (butter-fried kimchi, Spam, scrambled eggs and baby bok choy) or the chubby pork belly (kochujang-lacquered Kurobuta pork belly rice bowl with a fried egg, pickled radishes, water spinach, Chinese broccoli, cotija and peanuts).

The Kogi truck is my be all and end all food truck, so I was not the least bit surprised by how much I enjoyed my meal at Chego. Honestly, I only ended up there because the line at Howlin' Rays was inconceivable (90 minutes for fried chicken??? I think not). Still, Chego did not disappoint. I was starving, but the portions are so large at Chego that my friend and I instantly regretted getting both a rice bowl and gooey fries. No regrets though. I got the beef bowl and all the ingredients (whatever they were!) blended seamlessly. I mixed in a healthy dollop of sriracha and I was in heaven. Prices are a bit high ($13-15 for a bowl) and the location is super tiny, but given the flavor and portion size, its still worth it. I'd definitely come back.
Affordable and extremely tasty. Each dish packs a unique but flavorful punch, you can't go wrong. The vibe is fun and casual. Bonus: The outdoor seating area is BYOB!
Gosh, I don't really even know where to start when describing a rice bowl at Chego. I guess you really just need to know that they're big, filling, and super delicious. If I worked nearby I would come here for lunch as often as possible.
Happiness is a rice bowl from Chego. The Sour Cream Hen House—or, you know, a chicken bowl—is my favorite thanks to its spicy sour cream. For now at least, the menu here is a few dollars cheaper than the new location inside of DTLA's Whole Foods.
