We haven't had a single underwhelming dish at Tokki, a Korean tapas spot on W. 6th Street. Noodles are coated in fresh soy scallion oil. Raw Hokkaido scallops—soft and supple—are smeared in black truffle pate and dipped in hot brown butter. The kimchi fried rice is so beautiful, it almost looks like a Renaissance painting. Although completely unique, we hesitate to use the word “modern” when describing Tokki (because, what does that even mean?), but food here blends the past and the present producing dishes like fried tteokbokki rice cakes laced with rosé gochujang and uni served on onion aioli and toast. It’s fun, creative, and takes risks, and we’d like to model our personality after it. And of course, it’s all extremely delicious. Located right in the middle of Koreatown by The Wiltern, karaoke bars, and that giant H Mart, it's the ideal place to hang with friends or grab a drink before an event.
