Yogi Yogi is a Korean restaurant in Buena Park. Housed in a building that used to be an old-school Taco Bell, Yogi Yogi is a Korean busik--an inexpensive restaurant akin to fast food. But everything is made to order, and to drink, there’s soju and beer. Nearly everything you can eat here costs less than $10 and is designed to be filling. Take the soy carbonara topokki, for which chewy rice cake plugs get tossed with bacon, egg, grated cheese and black pepper until they're coated in a velvety richness that’s mitigated by the soy sauce and some onions. Almost everything else at Yogi Yogi is apt for sharing. Its array of gimbap, the Korean version of sushi rolls, pretty much requires you have at least one friend in tow before you order. The one with SPAM® comes in 14 pieces that no one expects any one person would want to finish by himself. And there are gimbap samplers that have three or more kinds of gimbaps arranged in rows of seven. If it’s your first time--or even if it’s not--order one of these.
