Try Some Of The Best Korean Food in Koreatown
This highly-rated Korean restaurant is said to be one of the best in town. At Her Name is Han, you can feast on delicious home-cooked entrees like BBQ ribs, fire-grilled bulgogi or cod steak with soybean sauce. Top off this mouth-watering meal with a house-brewed soju that’s equal parts sweet and refreshing. Heads up! Make sure to hit up the nearest ATM before you visit this spot, as they do not accept cards.
A tiny spot on the edge of Koreatown, Buttercup Bake Shop has developed a solid reputation for its delicious cupcakes and sweet treats in a city that has no shortage of either of those things. Here, the icing is all buttercream, making it the perfect blend of fluffy smoothness and melt-in-your mouth sweetness. Try this place’s Twinkie cupcake (they describe it as not having “the 37 anonymous ingredients of a real Twinkie."). Not a cupcake fan? Don’t worry—this spot has puddings, pies and top-notch macaroons for you to nosh on as well.
