The Best Restaurants In LA's Koreatown

Updated: 9 February 2017
Koreatown is a highly diverse community that occupies 2.7 square miles west of downtown and south of Hollywood. Of about 120,000 residents, half are Latino and a third are Asian. Although Koreans are not the largest demographic group in the area, their influence is the most prominent, which has led to great Korean restaurants opening up in the neighborhood.

M Grill

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.

M Grill, 3832 Wilshire Blvd, Ste 202, Los Angeles, CA +1 (213) 389-2770

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.

Kang Hodong Baekjeong, 3465 W 6th St, Ste 20, Los Angeles, +1 (213) 384-9678

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.

Myung Dong Kyoja, 3630 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA +1 (213) 385-7789

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.

Buil Samgye Tang, 4204 W 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA +1 (213) 739-0001
