Korean Seafood Pancakes?
Who's got the very best Korean seafood pancake in Sourthern California (Los Angeles, Orange County, Inland Empire)? Thus far, we've tried them at Soju Town (Wilshire Blvd, LA) Park's BBQ (Vermont near Olympic, LA) and Ka Hwa (Golden Springs Road, Diamond Bar) and all have been delicious, but who really has the BEST?
I like Ko Ba Woo's seafood pancake (7th and Vermont). It is very large and needs to be shared.
It's definitely PARK'S BBQ.
Park's is quickly becoming my favorite Korean BBQ joint --- easily replacing my monthly Soot Bull Jeep fix. A bit pricier than most, but definitely worth it. Tokyo-X pork belly and the Kobe beef .... nuff said.

It probably isn't the "very best" but if you need a quick inexpensive fix, at the Hollywood Farmer's Market (Vine/Cahuenga between Sunset and Hollywood) on Sunday mornings, there is a Korean restaurant's food stand, and they make a couple of varieties of those pancakes. I'm not sure what restaurant they're affiliated with but they've been setting up at the Farmer's Market for ages.
Definitely Chosun is the leader of the pack. They use fresh seafood as opposed to imitation at the one at Park's. But I do like the crispy texture of Park's. I still vote Chosun as the top one so far.
