Kobawoo House (Korea Town)

By in 07: Mid-Wilshire


Went back to Kobawoo House! They’re most famous for the pork wrap Bosam. Boiled Pork with fresh nappa cabbage and spicy mixture all around. Use the pickled raddish and nappa cabbage as the base, then put the slice pork and spicy raddish and salty fish on them, wrap it and eat it. Very delicious, so many flavors in one.


Jangban Cuksoo, Specially prepared acorn noodles with assorted vegetables. It’s cold noodle so it’s almost like a salad. Fish with raddish, dunno the name ^^;; The sauce is thick miso/bean paste-like, which is very strong flavor and is really delicious.

Bean paste soup, a bit like miso, but stronger and more bean flavor. Kimchi soup We eat these soups with rice for balance.

    Wooooooow! Everything looks so good! The pork wrap looks amazing! I have never seen that before~~~The seafood pancake is a popular dish in Japan too but is called “jijimi” here…was the food spicy generally??? The side dishes were free right?

    Yeah the side dishes are free (I supposed, or all charge in service fees). According to my Korean friend, this pork wrap is restaurant’s exclusive~~ You know despite there’re lots of chilli and ‘red’, it’s not that spicy. But still Joan got sick because she had a whole week of Korean food and without knowing that she ‘consumed’ too much spice…our body is not adapt for such diet so she felt sick (purely our speculation ^^;;;).

    Maybe it was the lamb hotpot that made her sick?? Or, she was sick but she still went for the lamb hotpot?? ^^;;;; You know how Indians always have yogurt after eating spicy curries to somehow smooth the sharp edge of the spice, maybe it works for Korean spice too? Try it next time~~~

    Yeah she was sick actually before the Kobawoo korean place ^^;; but she thought she could slept it away. I wonder how people with daily curry diet’s stomach is made of, imagine if you have to eat Indian food 3 meals a day 7 days a week. ^^;;; I like the Indian yogurt! Though the Indian restaurants I usually go to are westernize version so they taste more like normal yogurt drink. One time I went to a authentic one and the yogurt I had was…odd tasting~ it’s so salty and non-sweeten. I supposed that’s the authentic taste or something ^^;;

    Non-sweet yogurt in Indian restaurants? I haven’t tried that before…mango lassi is my favourite~~
