    This is the go-to place in Korea town for comfort food. Don't expect fancy but their specialty is abalone porridge, which is topped off with a raw egg. Read more

    Abalone porridge and samgyetang (#1&#2) hits the spot everytime! Service is slow and not great, but place is clean, food delicious, reasonably priced, and open late. Cash only.

    This 24-hour joint is very popular in LA, with the abalone porridge served by the dozens in the morning, & late into the night. The stews & soups are also terrific. Prices are extremely reasonable. Read more

    Insomniacs, drunks, and jetlagged travelers will never be forced to eat food from a gas station or Denny's in this neighborhood. Read more

    Good food, bad service. It's like the waiter doesn't have ears or eyes. Everything is clean and tasty. Had the kimchi beef stew and it was absolutely amazing.

    Jun Bok Juk (abalone chowder) and the Sam geh tang (whole chicken soup) are awesome! Especially on those rare cold LA days.
