9 of us drove to eat at Korean BBQ, in Korea town, that took us about 10 min or so to arrive to. If your in such a large group I suggest breaking it up in two to be seated much faster, also read rules as restuarant we sat at charged for meat left over by the pound? We also ended choosing the 9.99 menue each and somehow ended up paying a $20 gratuity fee, that unless it was written in Korean we did not know about prior, nor told about. This turned out to be less than what we normally would have tipped., hidden fees are just not fun.

Description

Born in Benin in West Africa, Angélique Kidjo—the Grammy-winning artist hailed as “Africa’s premier diva” by Time magazine—has shown that the joy and passion of African music is universal. As one of the continent’s most internationally celebrated female musical exports, she is a powerful singer and tireless performer.

Her music draws from African traditions and elements of American soul, funk, rap, jazz, Brazilian samba, reggae, and Cuban and Puerto Rican salsa, creating a perfect blend of world music. Kidjo, who has collaborated with artists such as Carlos Santana, Peter Gabriel, Alicia Keys, Josh Groban, Branford Marsalis and Joss Stone, is known for her dynamic and uplifting sound. Through her music and her commitment to advocacy, she exemplifies unity, peace and diversity.
