I often find myself driving aimlessly around Koreatown, hungry, but wanting to try somewhere new. Most times, I end up folding and just resorting to a consistent-but-not-great mainstay (in this case, BCD Tofu on Western). However, there were a few people already waiting for tables and I thought I'd take a chance on one of the other restaurants in the plaza. Enter Jangtuh Bosam where I had a $7.99 bulgogi lunch special that was sizable in portion, served with perfectly fine banchan dishes and all delivered with friendly service (shocker).
Their specialty is pork, so next time I will venture into bossam territory, which involves slices of boiled pork and a radish/kimchi concoction of some sort wrapped up in cabbage leaves. I will probably not get the bottle of soju usually accompanied with it, though.
