Learn about Koreatown

Koreatown is bordered by Melrose Avenue (north), Pico Boulevard (south), Arlington Avenue/Wilton Place (west), and Hoover Street (eeast). Wilshire Boulevard runs through the center of the neighborhood  and features high-rise office buildings.  Local shopping is on 8th Street (running parallel to Wilshire to the south) and on Western Avenue.  Be sure to try some Korean barbecue at one of the local restaurants  -- uncooked meat is brought to your table and you cook it over a built-in grill.  For the brave, sample some kimchee (Korean Pickled Cabbage).
