In our tasting tour across the surprisingly diverse southern California region, we have already toured Little Tokyo and Thai Town so now it is time to learn about Korean food, customs and history in Los Angeles while we eat our way across Koreatown.  Your ticket buys you a lesson on Korean life in Los Angeles by a talented and knowledgable tour guide, great conversations with fellow alumni, a little exercise (but not too much) and A LOT OF FOOD.  If you have tried any of our previous tours, you will LOVE this one which is being created just for us.  Please act quickly as this event will sell out.

A tentative list of stops and the likely dishes will include:  

Chunju Han-il Kwan
A Korean restaurant well known for its jjigae (chile-dosed soups) and its enormous array
of panchan (appetizers). Guests will sample scallion pancakes (a favorite of L.A.
Weekly’s Jonathan Gold) and poor man’s stew.
Their specialty is “melt in your mouth” galbi jjim (braised short rib). So delicious, in fact,
that many Koreans say is better than those in their homeland. Guests will discover for
themselves with a tasting of galbi jjim.
Ham Ji Park
Patrons flock here for their authentic Korean “comfort food.” Guests will enjoy the wildly
popular gamja tang (pork neck stew).
Dan Sung Sa
Dan Sung Sa has been profiled in numerous lifestyle/dining publications, lauded as the
best pojangmacha (restaurant/pub) experience on American shores. Guests will enjoy a
variety of anju (appetizers) and soju, a very common social tradition in Korea.
