The restaurant is the Japanese/Korean place Slow Fish in Mid-Wilshire. Most of the menu is Japanese, and the seafood is very good--I've eaten a lot of it.
But Korean barbecued pork is on the menu too, called Dancing Pork, and it's one of my favorites. Very spicy, a little sweet and loaded with sauce, it makes a terrific lunch special, for only $8, including miso soup, rice and salad (at the top). Even better, the serving was so big that I took some home for another meal.
You can also get the pork in a rice bowl, but it needs the salad to offset the heady flavors.
The good news is, you can have black rice on the Dancing Pork lunch special instead of white rice. All it costs is an extra $2.
