    The crowds go for the bossam, a Korean specialty featuring pork belly slices, but try the traditional dishes as well. The hulking seafood pajeon is a classic, as well as the kimchi stew. Read more

    Kobawoo may be a great place to go for crisp seafood pancakes, game hen stuffed with ginseng and sticky rice, and pig's feet pressed into a cool, gelatinous terrine, but its bossam is unsurpassed. Read more

    There are more than a dozen outstanding Korean restaurants in Koreatown. The lunchtime bossam is a great deal while the stews, fish, and pancakes are all top drawer. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Delicious! There is a wait at lunch because the lunch specials are such a great deal & feed 2 people. Kimchi soup and bulgogi were wonderful. My friend from Korea says their pork is the specialty!

    I don't need to say much about this place except that whatever you get will be unforgettable. My favorite dish is the pork belly with the sliced radish.

    Most famous for its version of bossam: boiled pork belly you wrap up into leaves with raw garlic, sliced chiles and a salty condiment made from tiny fermented fish. Read more

    Service was a little slow, but the food was good! We liked the seafood pancake and spicy beef soup with dumplings. Only four side dishes though! $1.50 valet parking.

    Best Korean Food and service ever!! We ordered Black cod, the waiter told us to wait for 15 min, but for 15 min, they kept feeding us with the small appetizer dishes three times. Fast service also

    Bossam is so good here, you'll regret not getting more bossam if you order anything else. (Trust me, I regretted it for a week)

    If you don't want any bullshit from the valet, try to keep a dollar or two around to throw at them. Their valet literally stood in the way of my door from being closed because I had no cash to tip.

    Bossam lunch special is good. Their special seafood pancake however was not. Too thick for my liking- I like Korean pancakes to be thinner, less doughy.

    Vor knapp 20 Jahren habe ich häufig koreanisch gegessen, aber nie im Restaurant. Hier ist es sehr lecker und authentisch. Der Service ist schnell und sehr freundlich.
