Mhat Korean Restaurant is a Korean restaurant in La Palma. It cooks Korean home-style dishes—comforting food full of soups and stews and things that have the ability to warm you from the inside out. The signature dish is something called dahk galbi, a stew that morphs into at least three other different dishes as you’re eating it. Big morsels of dark-meat chicken begin by swimming in a gochujang-tinted soup with sliced potatoes, cabbage, chewy rice cakes, hard-boiled eggs, and perilla leaves. But as the soup reduces and thickens, it turns into a spicy concentrate of garlic and Korean chili that coats the chicken and everything around it. And after it’s finished, rice is added to the dregs that remain and stir-fried to make a risotto-like dish that concludes the meal.
