  1. Not necessarily in Jefferson Park, but go up a bit north and you're sort of in the heart of Korea town, lots and lots of good and cheap grub there.

    1. It's about 2.7 miles to Dino's (I know the name says burgers on it but everyone gets the day glo orange chicken and fries) on Pico for Crazy Chicken (Pollo Maniaco)

      1. TY,

        I'm dying to try some of the K-town places.

        1. There is the Wellington Square Farmers Market on Sunday mornings which is small but has some delights like La Maison du Pain it is near Crenshaw and Washington and If you are over there my favorite brunches in the city can be had at Eureka Cafe though beware they are only open on weekends for now.
