The Prince

So Benjamin and Rebecca and I are meeting up tonight for drinks and for shameless discussion of the new Harry Potter book. We've decided to try a place in Koreatown called The Prince, which I read about online. It's a divey bar that used to be a fancy British hotel bar/restaurant in the 1950's, but the current owners are Korean. The decor is the same (English themed), but they serve korean food and soju and oriental beers. Sounds bizarre and fabulous and seems like an appropriate place to discuss Harry Potter since it's British, and one of the books in the series is called Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince! I read online that there's a scene from "Chinatown" with Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway that was shot there. What has fascinated me most about this place tho (apart from the free korean appetizers that come with each round of drinks) are the LIVE TENTACLES on the menu. I guess you can order live octupus tentacles are stilll MOVING on the plate. I read about it here and am trying to convince Benjamin to order them. It's a pretty long post so I'd just skim to the bottom where he finally gets around to describing his live tentacle experience. And I definitely recommend watching the video that goes with the review as well! Ewwww.....
