Best Korean BBQ: Chosun Galbi
When it comes to choosing the best Korean BBQ spot in Los Angeles there are so many options, but our favorite is the upscale Chosun Galbi. A Koreatown staple for almost 20 years, Chosun Galbi has a wide selection of the best quality of hand selected meats including Angus prime sirloin steaks.
With its granite countertops, a koi pond and a beautiful outdoor space, Chosun Galbi is one of the most upscale KBBQ restaurants in Koreatown and a carnivore’s paradise. Yes, it means higher prices, but it also means the highest quality of prime cut meats.
They’re known for their kot sal, which is the flower meat, and also their non-marinated kalbi (shortribs). They also have a full menu of authentic Korean dishes to choose from like their, hae mul pah jun (Korean seafood pancake), a variety of Korean stews, spicy raw crab, cold & spicy nyengmyun (noodles) and all of their side dishes (banchan) which come with the meal are superb.
Not only is the food delicious, but the service is also top notch. The servers come around often and cook the meats for you to ensure that guests have a great dining experience and dinner is cooked to perfection. They also offer private rooms for larger parties. —Jennifer Yu
