Kang Hodong Baekjeong
3465 W 6th StGreat meat quality, eggs and corn cooked with your meat, and great combo options. "Baekjeong" used to be places where working class Koreans did their dining in the 1800s so expect a low key environment
856 S Vermont AveKorean BBQ restaurant that most Koreans in LA go to. Great quality meat and delicious dishes. Soowon Galbi competes with few and delicious options. This is not an AYCE restaurant so if you are looking for a budget friendly option, Soowon Galbi is not for you
Gwang Yang Korean BBQ
3435 Wilshire Blvd
A new comer to the Korean BBQ scene in Los Angeles but quickly gaining a reputation as one of the best. Gwang Yang Korean BBQ is not only an extension of a great restaurant in Korea, but it also serves authentic "Gwang Yang" (regional area in Korea) bulgogi. It has a great environment and if you download their app, you can get free food!
3330 W Olympic BlvdOne of the most top quality and upscale Korean BBQ restaurants in Los Angeles. The meat quality is amazing and will melt in your mouth. A bit on the pricy side but your body will thank you for it. The wait staff wear traditional Korean so look for them!
