Koreatown in Los Angeles is one of the densest urban areas in the United States. It’s packed with people, coffee shops, designer boutiques, markets, and nightclubs, but the restaurants—some of which are open 24 hours—are its biggest draw. So who has the best Korean barbecue? Here’s an alphabetical list of top spots from Chowhound.
DWIT GOL MOK/DGM
3101 West 8th Street, Los Angeles
Famous for its bo ssam (steamed pork wrapped in lettuce or cabbage) and fried chicken wings, this busy, Korean-style pub also does barbecue. Beware the large smoking section on the terrace.
