Open since 1986, Beverly Soon is one of the most iconic restaurants in Koreatown, and if you only have time for one meal in the neighborhood, you should consider having it here. With wood-carved tables and wooden beams spanning the ceiling, the space feels like a mountain spa, but instead of massages and body scrubs, you’re getting incredible tofu stews and big plates of meat. The sweet ladies running the place will also sell you hard on the bibimbap, and you should take them up on it - it might be even better than the tofu.
