The Corner Place is one of the oldest restaurants in Ktown and a dependable spot for BBQ. But they’re known for their big bowls of dong chi mi gook soo, a cold soup with thin, vermicelli-like noodles in a clear broth made from fermented vegetables and other ingredients that have been a closely-guarded secret since The Corner Place opened in 1982. It’s not our favorite cold soup in Koreatown, but with a refreshingly tangy bite to it, we’d never pass it up on a hot summer day.
