Grand Opening! Terra Cotta - Koreatown


I was lucky enough to be there during their soft opening tasting event. This place is absolutely beautiful, and the food was really good and they were using good quality ingredients. Everything was creative, specially their desserts. But the food came out really slow. It took 90 minutes to get our second appetizer, which was little crazy. But other than that, this is my currant top 5 place to eat in Ktown!

My ginger beer

We didn't like that they serve champagne in a wine glass, and my straw was too shot so it was difficult to drink. Hope they'll fix that.

Maine lobster salad $19
- heirloom tomatoes, mizuna. white balsamic and grape vinaigrette

Absolutely lovely dish. Tomatoes were so sweet and juicy.

Grilled octopus $19
- kochujang romesco, korean pickles, roasted garlic

Crispy smelts $19
- tempura smelts, red onion & cilantro, ama ponzu
Again, they use sweet and juicy tomatoes, and I'm really happy about it. 

Squid ink fried rice $32 
- garlic and kimchee fried rice, squid ink, dayboat scallop, argentinian prawn
It's big enough to share with 3 people. 

Filet Mignon $33
-wagyu tenerloin, truffle soy-mirin reduction, baby carrots, pommes puree
It was rare, and steak was cold.

Shellfish pasta $35
-maine lobster, bay scallops, manila clams, santa barbara uni butter sauce
My least favorite dish from all. It was just average. Pretty big portion.

Matcha Mille feuille 

Makgeolli foam, Passion fruit cream, milk powder crumble, banana ice cream 
This was absolutely my favorite dessert!

Creme brulee with raspberry sauce on the bottom
