Open since 1985, Kobawoo is a Koreatown staple, and home to our favorite plate of bossam (boiled pork belly) in the neighborhood. With big, wooden booths and clean lines everywhere, Kobawoo’s interior is a little more upscale than other restaurants in the area, and its zen-like atmosphere is ideal for date night. That said, if you’re flying solo, and don’t want to eat a giant $30 plate of pork belly yourself, they have a smaller lunch special that’s only $12.99.
