I was invited to the opening of the Chosun Hwaro & Nara Teppan Restaurant, the home of the largest Korean BBQ experience!


Eli Kim: “The Executive General Manager Eli Kim explained, “All of our servers were trained to cook at each table and we can also cook for a big party of 60 at one table in one sitting.”  

SZ: “My love of BBQ led me right to the special multiple cooking tables for tasting. With every bite, the steak was so tender and so delicious!”

Eli Kim: “We serve exclusive Empress Beef, Pearl Steak, special cut Kalbi Korean BBQ short Ribs, pork belly, Teppanyaki show, sushi, and a menu. They can have their meal marinated or without the marinade.

SZ: “That’s great for guests on health diets.

When the server cooks for us at our booth that is a private experience which gives us more time to relax and really enjoy the meal. Couples, friends or families might enjoy this or the teppanyaki for the waiter show at custom cooking tables.



Eli Kim: “We have 250 world-class restaurants in Korea and China,this is the first in the United States.  

The menu features classic table-grilled meat options like Pearl Steak, a hidden unexplored jewel of beef known for its exquisite flavor and only retrieved by the most skilled chefs and flavored with Ebadom’s own signature seasoning. There’s no need to be a grill master, full-service grilling from Chosun Hwaro & Nara Teppan’s servers is offered for all patrons. Guests looking to dine on less meat-centric items have a full sushi menu to choose from including the Volcanic Yellowtail Roll with spicy yellowtail, cucumber, micro cilantro, sliced jalapeno and ponzu sauce; and a Creamy Crunch Roll with cream cheese, avocado, shrimp tempura, crab, eel sauce and sweet mayo. To complete the Chosun Hwaro & Nara Teppan experience, a full soju and sake menu is offered with the likes of Chamisul Soju and Junmai Daiginjo Sake. Guests can also indulge in specialty cocktails like the Knight’s Voyage made with Tanqueray Rangpur gin, Aperol, house-made orange bitters and fresh lemon juice.

The expansive 13,000-square-foot dining space boasts 30 Korean BBQ tables, 12 teppanyaki tables, with seating for up to 485 guests. The restaurant also offers VIP private dining rooms, equipped with their own Korean BBQ tables and a special VIP menu for diners. Guests on the go can stop by Chosun Hwaro & Nara Teppan’s outdoor patio and walk-up bar area adjacent to Harmon Avenue.

Chosun Hwaro & Nara Teppan grills and teppanyaki tables fire up on July 31 inside the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood. The restaurant will be open daily from 9 a.m. –   2 a.m. For more information visit or call (702) 369-9637.
