This fluorescent-lit strip mall spot on 6th Street is open 24 hours a day, with good reason. No matter when you walk in, you’ll see groups huddled around massive cauldrons of one of our favorite dishes in Koreatown - their galbi jjim. It’s a huge cast iron plate filled with tender, spicy spare ribs, rice cakes, and vegetables in a red galbi sauce. Order it with cheese on top, and they’ll blowtorch it at your table to make it melted and bubbly. Beyond this incredible plate of meat, there’s a lot of other stuff to like - namely, the soups. Order our favorite, the oxtail with brisket; you’ll thank us when you’re stumbling out of Toe Bang at 2am.
