Where do you eat if you are tired of eating Korean food in Ktown?

Koreatown’s growing popularity amongst new comers has sparked a growth in its culinary diversity that stretches beyond its staple of KBBQs, spicy tofu soup, late night porridges and stews; and now spreading its flavor profile into outer worldly fusions, as well as highly cherished shellfishes, and your typical breakfast or brunch benedicts.  Being a resident in this neighborhood affords you the advantage of divulging into Ktown’s well established eatery scene, may it be for the adventurous seekers or those who enjoy their routine KBBQ hopping from block to block as they seem to never cease to appear.  (Marvin J.

This restaurant has a stand out location on the familiar busy 6th street,  corner of 6th and South Oxford Avenue.  On a jewell of a night, you’ve decided that Korean BBQ and kimchi wont quite cut it.  Dinner for two, which protein do you pick that shows off your flare; Beef Tartare, Foie Gras Terrine, or Duck Breast? (Marvin J. Lee)

Food type: Fusion to the extreme.

This is the final piece to Roy Choi‘s commanding presence at the heart of the largest Korean enclave in America. And it’s a cool show. Housed inside a massive greenhouse on the rooftop deck of the hotel, Commissary focuses on vegetables, which means grilled corn, asparagus, and salads galore. It’s a fancy schmancy country club pool, right smack in K-Town.
