This homely little Koreatown restaurant is yet another example of the maxim that some of the best food in L.A. is found in the oddest little places. A tiny shop with a few bare tables, this place nonetheless serves a magnificent bowl of spicy rice cakes, a mixture of firey sauce, tubular little rice cakes, ramen noodles, fish cakes, hard-boiled eggs and cabbage. There's other stuff too, but this is what you're here for.
