I come here for the Dong Chi Me noodles and their Roast Gui. But mainly for the noodles on a hot summer day!
Tried and True Korean BBQ Spot – Recommend the Kalbi (short ribs) and Chadol baki (beef brisket). Of course, you have to try the signature Dong Chi Mi Gook Soo (cold noodle soup). All the flavor is in the soup..it has a refreshing, mildly tart taste to it. You're bbq is served with Pa (kind of a shredded green onion salad). You might prefer to order a serving of rice instead. The chicken is good but usually take twice the time it takes to cook the Kalbi...I usually don't the patience to wait for it. The meat and marinade is of better quality than most Korean BBQ places and the price is fairly moderate.
great value Korean BBQ – I admit. you may have to wait, but it used to be longer. However, last 3 times I've visited, I did not have to wait. bad economy? still busy inside though.
I love KALBI and cow tongue. I know it sounds uh~~~, but it taste sooooooo ~~~ good. chewy and soft.
cold noodle is not to forget after BBQ. I always order 1 BBQ and 1 cold noodle with my wife to share cause the portion is biGGGGGG.
This longstanding K-town restaurant goes beyond BBQ with their signature cold noodle soup, "dong-chi-mi gook-so." – In Short
On the cons list, you'll find an impossible parking lot, long waits and brusque service. Luckily, this no-nonsense joint also has reasonable Korean barbecue prices, generous portions and a killer noodle dish that brings back diners time and time again. Served in a cold, sweetly pungent white radish base, these noodles are especially refreshing on warmer days, when regulars will down the soup with bowls raised to their lips. Even the half-size order of noodles is plenty, especially if you're grilling meat first. Guests also receive no less than 8 different side dishes to accompany their meals.
Best Cold Noodle Soup - Dong Chi Mi Gooksu – I'm Korean and I must say that this restaurant is known for its Dong Chi Mi Gooksu, which is the cold noodle stock soup. Add that w/Bulgogi and you're set! Price is AWESOME. One order of bulgogi is good for two people. Same goes for the noodle soup. Enjoy!
Best Korean BBQ – This is absolutely the only Korean BBQ place I go to. There was a time I decided to be more open minded and try the many other BBQ places nearby, let me tell you, it was a bad idea. The only place where you put good food and good price together. I have been coming here for years and years. They have raised their prices but it is still the best deal and most importantly the best taste. I like all the side dishes and they give plentiful. My favorite is the bean sprouts and the black beans. Remember to end your meal with their famous cold noodle soup. Not only does it help cool down the body after eating charred meat it is very pleasant to the palat. The noodles are chewy which I love.
Take it from a Korean Angelino. – This place is a staple for us! Yea...there's fancier places popping up all over but they also cost more for the bbq. This has been a place my family has been going to for over 15 years. And pretty much any Korean you ever meet in LA will know this place. One thing they have that they're definitely famous for is the Dong Chi Mi Guk Soo ( noodles ). It so famous, it considered better than any in Korea. Get the BBQ followed by the noodles towards the end. Great on hot summer day. Seriously. I love this place.
Good food – You get your money's worth and more when you dine there. The meat portions are large for a really good price. It is one of the best Korean BBQ places I've been to. Parking is a pain but its worth it. There are long waits when they're busy but thats worth it too.
The Best Korean BBQ – I have been to many Korean BBQ restaurants in Koreatown and the greater L.A. county. And Corner Place has exceeded all others. The kalbi and bulgogi are absolutely divine. They give you a lot, and the price is average. It is well worth going to the ghetto part of L.A. and getting the best meat around!
Lots of Food – My group of 9 friends went and we only got 6 orders of meat and cold noodles. That was enough to stuff us, and we had 6 guys too. The meat was good, bulgoki was best. Wish they had more side dishes though. Parking is a pain, had to do street parking in a slightly ghetto neighborhood.
Fantastic Korean Food – They have the best noodles ever, and they're only $7, plus big enough to share! I usually go with a friend and the bill comes out to about $30 (incl. tax, tip). We always order 1 order of the noodles, and 1 order of the bulgogi. Tried the galbi a few times, and it was just ok. The bulgogi is really great, though. It's really the best Korean barbeque!
