Dan Sung Sa

Areas:

The ladies who does yakitori grill away for the late drinkersThis is probably one of my favorite place to take a non-Korean in an initiation of Koreatown. The menu's are in Korean, dirt cheap, roudy and divey bar atomosphere, and have great bar foods that you can't get anywhere else.  Also the decorations is Korea 1960 ~ 1970 feel with kick ass style that will impress you to no end.

So Hyang

Article Type:

Areas:

Inside of So HyangGoing to a fancy Korean restaurant most of time is a miss and very expensive. They use good ingredients but small hole-in-the-wall is much tastier done with love. So Hyang is one of these places but they have very good dish to offer. For that, FoodPants would recommend trying these 2 dishes: Kalbi Abalone Soup and Picked Crab.
