If you are looking to do a little shopping, be sure to stop Daiso, a Japanese chain store that all the locals love. The great thing about Daiso is that most of its items are sold for under $2.00! Don’t be worried about the quality either. Items from Daiso are surprisingly reliable. At Daiso, you can purchase stationery, pens and pencils, and hardcover notebooks as well as kitchen supplies, cleaning supplies and so much more! They even have leather-like iPad cases for just under $5. You won’t be able to find a better deal anywhere else. The Koreatown location is at 621 S. Western Ave. If you want more options, head over to the Madang Plaza Shopping Mall. You’ll find all the shops you know and love at this three level shopping complex
If after all the shopping you work up an appetite, enjoy some delicious Korean BBQ in Koreatown; you won’t find better Korean BBQ anywhere else! For some of the tastiest Korean BBQ around, head over to Magal BBQ. At this restaurant you’ll find consistent quality, which sets them apart from other restaurants in the area. Some excellent choices include the thick up samgyeopsal, the famous Mapo Galmaegi (marinated pork skirt meat), or the marinated short rib. Magal BBQ is located at 3460 W 8th Street.
Koreatown also has an excellent selection of day spas. After all your travels, treat yourself to a relaxing day at the spa at affordable prices.
