Gon Jiam (Koreatown)

By in 07: Mid-Wilshire

My foodie friend recommended me this hole-in-the-wall joint Gon Jiam that served what he described as hidden Korean food.


Even though the place is small and mom n’ pop shop feeling, it has an user friendly English + Photo menu on the wall.


Yummy homemade condiment and side dishes.


Pork Belly Bosam $18.23. I’ve had this dish at Kobawoo House before, which is broiled pork that you wrapped in vegetables and garnished anyway you like. The pork is cooked tenderly, and the combination is light, fresh and tasty. The portion is too much for two people, but since it’s so easy to eat that I finished it with no problem.


Beef Soup $7.29. Wow this is incredibly rich with a golden, buttery beef flavor. The beef in the soup are very tender and creamy. You can seasoned the soup with salt on the table as well.

Great good, low key and authentic, this place is great!  There’re many other things to try so I can’t wait to go back (my friend recommended the spicy salad). My mouth watered as I’m typing this, the soup would be so great for the cold weather.

    I recommend the “boodae jjigae” here. It’s pretty solid.
