When you're in the mood for some kimchee, galbee and bulgogi, LA's Koreatown restaurants are where to go. From authentic Korean BBQ favorites like Soot Bull Jeep to one of the city's most beloved Mexican spots (Guelaguetza, in case you hadn't heard), there's something for everyone at these K-Town restaurants.

You may be in Koreatown but step into this acclaimed spot and the aromas of Oaxaca will transport you south of the border. Famous for their mole and Oaxacan dishes that you can't find at a late-night drive-thru (or taco truck, for that matter), this is where to go for authentic dishes like clayudos (Oaxacan pizza) and chapulin (grasshoppers).
This Brazillian eatery serves up an assortment of traditional favorites including pastel (empanada-style starters) and the Coxinha de Frago (dough stuffed with chicken and special cream cheese). There's also an open salad bar and loads of churrasco options that are brought to your table.
This K-town BBQ joint is aptly named for its juicy and tender pork options. If pork isn't your thing, you can still get lost in the thin sliced beef, or chow down on the vegetable chili grilled rice. Dine on the smoke-free outdoor patio or in the modern indoor space.
