The offerings from Jae Kim’s brick and mortar "Home of the Kimchi Fries" should be as yummy as that of the popular trucks. The menu is slightly different, sporting Kimchi fried rice balls containing rice, cheddar, Monterey Jack, nori, and gochujang, but retains plenty of crowd favorites.
Located near Highland Mall, this neighborhood favorite serves up Korean barbecue as well as noodles, soups, and a good selection of vegetarian options. Try the Gal Bi Jjim.
The selection of sushi here is fairly priced, and the marvelous Korean barbecue is worth your time.
Located in the Chinatown Center, Korean Grill is a favorite for family nights out. We get excited about the Ojingo Bockeum (stir-fried squid) and the SsamBap with four kinds of bulgogi.
Here the emphasis is on fresh, healthy food with a minimum of sugar, oil, and fat. This MSG-free zone offers gluten-free items as well. The spicy chicken bulgogi is a favorite of Downtown bartenders.
This restaurant serves delicious, homestyle, traditional Korean in a cozy spot that's open late. Look for big portions of authentic flavors, unique panchan items, and some dishes you won't find anywhere else in town.
Small, crunchy bites referred to as KFC, or Korean Fried Chicken, is what you are looking for here. However, don't miss the Mandu (Korean pot stickers), or the kimchi and bacon fried pancake.
