If you are craving meat and want to try something different than a typical Korean barbeque, then M Grill should be at the top of your list. This is the only Brazillian churrasco barbecue in the area. The salad bar is also exceptional. As far as dishes go, the seafood stew and the chicken heart stand out the most.

Kang Hodong Baekjeong
This is by far the best Korean barbeque, not just in Koreatown but in all of L.A. This restaurant is owned by the famous Korean wrestler/comedian Kang Ho-dong. Unlike most Korean barbeques, it uses charcoal and fresh, unfrozen meat. You can taste the difference from the first bite.

Myung Dong Kyoja
Korean food is more than just tofu and barbeque. This restaurant especially highlights Korean style dumplings and noodle soup. Everything is handmade and has a great chewy texture. The dumplings have a very light ‘skin’ and also look beautiful.

Buil Samgye Tang
If you are in need of a hangover cure, look no further; Buil Samgye Tang specializes in Korean Ginger Chicken Soup. Mind you, this is not your typical chicken soup. The chicken is cooked for so many hours that even the bone is so soft that you can eat it without much effort.
