I am so so excited to share this kalbi beef bowl recipe. I have been dreaming of making more Korean inspired food for a while and a recent trip to Bites restaurant in Oregon (more on that in a bit), sparked an even more inspiring recipe day and ya go!

The first stop was the college town of FOREST GROVE, approximately 45 minutes due west of PDX in the Tualatin Valley.

From the owners of the popular local restaurant Pac Thai comes Bites, a new restaurant that serves dishes that draw influence from both western and eastern cultures, creating a very unique dining experience.

Pac Thai owners Thomas Gilstrap and Fon Khunsamart combine Eastern and Western dishes at Bites Restaurant, their new eatery in downtown Forest Grove.

Our meal was exquisitely delightful, beginning with Kalbi Tacos, Bites Korean BBQ Wings and the Crab Cake Bites. Every bite of food so delicious, I could have ordered a second plate of everything.
