Korean dinner in LA... maybe on a Monday
Hi... heading to LA for a few days. Want a great Korean meal, especially interested in a wide variety of banchan. Any recommendations would be appreciated. In Chicago (where I'm from) many places are closed Monday. Is this likely to be a problem in Koreatown?
Every single place will be open on Monday (and every other day of the week).
Are you looking just for banchan and could care less about everything else? Or are you looking for a particular kind or type of Korean food (e.g. BBQ, Jjigae, etc.)
If you all you care about is the banchan in terms of variety, I suppose you could do worse than Genwa.
My favorite meals in Ktown are at Chin Go Gae, Ondal, and Sun Ha Jang. I get the house specialty at each place.
Sorry, I don't remember what the banchan was like at these places; that's all a bit of a blur for me. I think Ondal's was pretty impressive but I could be misremembering.
Edit: I remember why I liked Ondal's banchan now, they give you an awesome broiled saury/sanma.
