A-Frame in Culver City has been open for a while and the food still deliciously delivers home-style comfort food with a Korean twist. The place is always busy and the happy hour is quite the deal with 3 dollars appetizers like the Chicago Dog and Potato Skins with a dipping sauce made of buttermilk, bleu cheese and lemongrass puree. The cocktails are a steal too with 5 dollar wine, beer and cocktails. The Sazerac for 5 dollars is not only exceptionally prepared, but delicious.
Besides happy hour, the traditional menu is loaded with tasty finds like the Furikake Kettle Corn which is sweet, hot with a hint of the sea. I couldn’t stop eating it – it should be sold in bags to-go.
A-Frame is famous for its Cracklin Beer Can Chicken which has a hint of cinnamon and the skin is the crunchiest experience ever (for chicken). The roja and verde dipping sauces add to the already marinated flavors of the bird with a perfect amount of heat.
The Lamb Meatball Skewer with Garlic Yogurt and Salsa Verde was juicy and tender. The sauces are garlicky good and pair well with the hearty lamb flavors as well as the Citrus Gremolata Salad. You may need a little double mint gum after you eat this dish, but well worth it.
A-Frame is still fantastic fresh food with a fun kick. The restaurant is lively with communal style tables, so you never know who you may sit next to. Chef Roy Choi just makes delicious food.
