Korean in Koreatown

    Perfect for
  • Dining Solo
  • Lunch
  • Walk-Ins

There are certainly more refined dishes than budae jjigae, but looks aren’t everything. The spicy kimchi stew hits the table brimming with giant leaves of cabbage, spam, instant ramen noodles, and chopped up pieces of sausage. It’s not exactly a who’s-who of the butcher shop, but Chunju’s version is spicy, savory, and immensely satisfying. The small space has a lively, tavern-like feel and its central location on 6th Street makes it a great jumping-off point for a night out. Also, their banchan is some of our favorite in the neighborhood.
