Rating: Slightly odd 2nd floor beef bowl joint
Erick took me one lunch to this strange location upstairs in the Olympic Collection (at Olympic and Sawtelle).
This place is like a super Yoshinoya, with very beef oriented piles of meat on rice.
They also have steaks and tomahawks!
House salad. Tasty little Japanese salad.
Soup that comes with the lunch. Mild, salty and pleasant.
Fried chicken with curry rice. Fine, but not nearly as good a curry as at many other Japanese curry places, plus they had NO pickles! How can you have curry with no pickles?
Teriyaki beef bowl. Marinated slightly sweet beef on rice.
American brand beef served with their special sauce. Basically a chopped up steak on rice. Good with wasabi (which mysteriously cost an extra $1 or so!).
Red Rock’s signature items are these low temperature cooked meats (they look pink and raw) piled up on rice with a goopy white yogurt sauce and a raw egg. Erick had them on a previous visit and declared it pretty gross, so we skipped.
This is an interesting joint, and I certainly won’t go frequently, but if you are really craving some Japanese beef and don’t want Yakiniku (which I like much better), then try it out.
