King Chang LA
After years of packed nights at their Buena Park location, King Chang opened a second KBBQ restaurant right in the middle of Koreatown. This place specializes in gopchang—you'll see golden-brown offal served over bowls of udon or sizzling next to a medley of chopped veggies on a steel table grill. If you're looking to streamline your order with a combo, get the $89 beef set that comes with plenty of banchan, gyeranjjim, and three rounds of slightly sweet bulgogi, juicy boneless kalbi, and our favorite of the bunch, the god-tier marinated short ribs. You'll likely have to wait 30-ish minutes for a table on the weekends. But that still makes this a great backup option when you can't get into Ahgassi Gopchang next door (it's been jam-packed since BTS grabbed dinner there in 2022).
