Best restaurant in Koreatown area?

I wanna eat some good hearty korean food.

  1. Koreatown is huge and has a wide array of Korean food available. Do you want BBQ? Do you want noodles? Do you want a sojubang?

    My personal favorite style of Korean food is soondubu, to which I head to Sokongdong, but I think a lot of people prefer Beverly Soon Tofu across the street.

    There was a recent discussion of the high quality meat and banchan at Park's BBQ. Unless you want charcoal, to which I always head to Soot Bull Jeep.

    Kyochon is quite a popular fried chicken stop. I don't think the food at Dan Sung Sah is all that but the experience is worth it.

    (And arguably the best overall restaurant in Koreatown is probably Guelaguetza, but it's a Oaxacan place.)

    1. My overall fave in K-town is Sa Rit Gol. It justs tastes like good home cooking to me. They do a great black cod and daikon in spicy soy sauce. I love their mung bean pancakes, too. Plus, they always serve a generous selection of very good panchan.

        their black cod is pretty good. the kbbq was pretty forgettable, and the rules were just asinine

          Rules? Been there twice and never had any rules read to me.

              My searching fails me now, but I read about it on CH before going there. I thought I knew what was up, but I guess not.

              Their mastery of the english language is severely lacking compared to their mastery of food. The jist of it is, it's impossible to order a la carte kbbq. Order a combination or prepare to be perplexed.
