Where do Koreans frequent for BBQ in Ktown?

I went to Park's recently, too many non-Korean patrons. Meat quality was good but Kimchi was too sweet.

Where do Korean's typically frequent for BBQ in Ktown?

  1. I see mostly all Korean families when we go to Dong il Jang.

    Dong Il Jang Restaurant
    3455 W 8th St, Los Angeles, CA 90005

    1. A lot of korean's at Soot Bull Jeep. It gets me that they come in all dressed up to eat around a charcoal grill. But it is good.

      1. Moo dae po 2 for AYCE.

        Soot bool jeep for budget bbq.

        Park's BBQ to splurge. Don't worry about a lot of non koreans being there. That place is legit.

        1. I asked my Korean friend who moved from Korea a few years ago for his favorite Korean BBQ places. He said his favorite all-you-can-eat places are O-dae-San (best) and San Ya (cheap).

            went to san ya last night, no koreans to be found.

          2. I am the only Round-Eye when I go here. "Corner Place." It's in a mini-mall (there's a 7-11 in complex) at the corner of James M. Woods and Wesmoreland. Referred to me by a Korean.

              Lots of people go there because it's cheap, not necessarily b/c it's the best bbq around. Although, their cold coodle is the best in the city.

                I believe I answered the question. The question did not ask me to analize WHY. I have been to expensive places that were not good, and cheap ones that were not good. This one is good. Is it the best? I don't know. I do know it's the one I like, and everyone I've ever taken there likes.

                Found Corner Place by accident. Went there for lunch-moms and kids with my girlfriend (Korean) who has introduced me to Moodaepo, Parks and Chosun Galbee. We really liked Corner Place. My son and I were the only Caucasians except for a long table full of police. I thought the quality of the meat was good. I've had funky meat at Soot Bull Jeep. Our go to place is still Chosun Galbee, yes, with my Korean friend and her family. I like their panchan but their kimchee is lacking-sour instead of well fermented and not spicy enough but they have the best bim bim bap I have ever had.
