Scoring yet another great deal at Le Coq with Burpple Beyond, I got my usual (Truffle Beef Yakiniku) and had their Steak & Scorched Rice ($28) for the first time. Good for 2 pax to share, the portion of the crispy garlic rice was pretty substantial. The scorched rice was also fragrant from the generous bits of garlic and held a smokey aroma from the slight char on the bottom as well as the edges that were touching the hot plate. As for the protein, the flame-grilled beef was done to a lovely shade of pink. Tender and lightly seasoned, the meat was surprisingly juicy and paired well with the rice. Though noting that the dish got a tad cloying toward the end.
