Food...

All-you-can-eat KBBQ! It's bomb....and cheap! Just Yelp KBBQ in Koreatown and be amazed at the selection.

Close to K-Town is Dino's Chicken and Burgers. It's off W Pico Blvd. near S Vermont Ave. It looks hella sketchy, but so delish.

If you're in K-Town, you're not too far from Downtown LA, so you can go check it out. Lots of good Japanese restaurants and ramen shops in Little Tokyo.

When are you coming down? We're having a pho meet in the OC on the 15th.

Cool thanks for the suggestions. Probably be there within a week.

Are you looking for food, excitement, and what's your budget per night?
Looking for places to eat, drink, hang out. Budget isn't really a concern as long as its within reason

Eat Pork:
Ham Ji Park - Koreatown - Los Angeles, CA | Yelp
Get the spicy pork ribs. Also, they have valet parking in the back, so bring a couple of dollar bills. In my opinion, it's better than all you can eat korean bbq.

If you are hung over the next morning and want some soup:
Han Bat Sul Lung Tang - Koreatown - Los Angeles, CA | Yelp
Get the brisket beef soup if you arent very adventurous. Oh yea, this place is cash only too.

Alcohol and Oysters:
EMC Seafood & Raw Bar - Koreatown - Los Angeles, CA | Yelp
Ive never been, but my friends love EMC.

I stopped drinking the cheap alcohol in koreatown, but Chapman Plaza has many drinking spots all right next to eachother. A good bar (there's no soju here though) to start off at is Escala (On the outside of Chapman Plaza):
Escala - Koreatown - Los Angeles, CA | Yelp

And Ham Ji Park and EMC Seafood are like 2 blocks away from Chapman Plaza.

Some of the drinking places inside Chapman Plaza:
Cafe Bliss - Koreatown - Los Angeles, CA | Yelp
Toe Bang Cafe - Koreatown - Los Angeles, CA | Yelp
Gaam Restaurant and Lounge - Koreatown - Los Angeles, CA | Yelp

Basically all the nightlife of Koreatown is near Chapman Plaza...if you want to go Korean clubbing, I can include details as well.

Things not too far from Koreatown:
Griffith Park/Observatory
Hollywood
The Grove (shopping + occasional american celebrities) The Grove

Dino's is on Pico blvd & Berendo st. U must have the Chicken dinner and NOTHING ELSE!! the owner is Greek and uses a Greek marinade on the chicken which makes it so mouthwatering delicious. Nothing on earth tastes as good. This is what made them famous. And yes it's a sketchy area but not as bad as it was 10-15 years ago. Go during the day, not at night. I go at night, but u shouldn't LoL. My old Jr. High is one block north of this location. I've been going to Dino's since I was a kid. Dayum that was a looong time ago LoL.

A few blocks away on Olympic & Vermont is Hodori KBBQ. I've been going there since forever. Actually used to be a donut shop when I was a kid. I grew up & lived in Koreatown for 23 years.

Open 24 hours to feed all the drunken masses after all night partying/clubbing/drinking.

For some craft beer & food try Beerbelly on Western & 6th st.

Also for more craft beer & food go to Golden Road Brewing. It's about a 20 minute drive from Ktown, right across from the L.A. Zoo. I love this place. Very chill atmosphere and a huge open eating/drinking area.

There's a ton to do in Ktown, Los Angeles, and down south in Orange County.
I'm down to chill for a few. Hell, I might even get a hold of integraGSR23...he isn't too far away and i'm sure he's down as well. Shoot me a PM on ur dates and availability if interested. If not it's cool. I know sometimes time is limited. Plenty of great ideas in this thread. Hope they were helpful and enjoy ur stay.

Man, I haven't been there in a while. I'd usually go with my USC friends but they all graduated and left. I miss that chicken, fries and coleslaw plate for like 5 bucks. :(

Hodori Restaurants :::Korean Food in Town:::
Hodori Restaurant - Pico-Union - Los Angeles, CA | Yelp

I wouldnt really recommend Hodori. It's more of a place to be seen at late at night (1am - 3am) than a place to enjoy a late meal. There are a lot of people there, but I dont feel like the food is that good.

Mom?s House - Koreatown - Los Angeles, CA | Yelp
Mom's House has better food than Hodori in my opinion...but a lot less "eye candy".

Just outside of koreatown there's also Pacific Dining Car. They sell great steaks 24/7.
Pacific Dining Car - Westlake - Los Angeles, CA | Yelp

Taylor's Steakhouse is another good steak place in koreatown.

I second this recommendation.

^^^ where is this "eye candy" you speak of?? :laugh: maybe a few here & there... nothing special though.
Hodori is quick and easy but yes, maybe not as fancy as other places.
My new fave is Star KBBQ in Garden Grove. Big, clean, fancy, good food, and all u can eat. Plus they serve alcohol, but that's quite a drive from Ktown.

Besides food, don't forget to check out the DODGERS, Swedish massage for a back rub of course, and get a lapdance at one of the many nudie bars located all over L.A. :p
