    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.

    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)

    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.

    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

    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

    Bossam is good but the jengban noodles are the best. Great kimchi too.

    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!

    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
