Many restaurants in Koreatown get by on a specialty dish or the allure of packing large groups into booths with BBQ grills. Jun Won does neither. This casual, family-run spot has an excellent menu full of everything from bossam (boiled pork belly) to steamed cod and oysters. It’s all good, and even better - you can usually get a seat right away.
