OB Bear

Perfect For:Big GroupsSports!

OB Bear has some of the best bar food in Koreatown, and the crowds to match. On a Friday night, expect lines from 7pm on, but it’s worth waiting for two things: the chicken wings and the seafood pancake. The wings have a satisfying crunch, while the pancake is the size of your head, and is actually two thick pieces stacked on top of each other. If you’re looking for a larger meal, the whole fried chicken is a good bet - it’s not breaded, it’s just crispy and has a ton of flavor. Add in a few pitchers of Hite, and you can spend an entire night here.
