Jangtuh Bosam

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.

Weezermonkey: Will do! And boy, do I have a lot of Ktown places to try.

Mary: Thanks! Sometimes those "steam" photos don't work out, but I liked this one.

Bagnatic: Ha, thanks!

awesome. I should REALLY write this up since their bossam is on par with Kobawoo's, but is nearly 1/2 the cost. Good times.

SinoSoul: Ooh, yeah I've been meaning to try Kobawoo. But, if it's double the price...
