When I lived in mid-city, I hit up Koreatown a lot. Now, it's much more rare, and I'm planning to take an out-of-town friend over there Friday night. If you had to pick a single place in K-town that you feel distills the essence of the best Korean food in LA, what would it be?
My two personal favorites are Soban and Beverly Soon. But I know there's a world out there that I'll never understand.
