Great question Brad! You most definitely want to head towards Koreatown.

Huge fan of Mountain Cafe, great hole in the wall spot and they're open 24/7. 

Kang Ho-Dong Baekjeong has some serious drool worthy meals. Go for the pork combo!

Hi Brad,

While I have definitely not tried all of them, my experience has been great at Park's BBQ. It's on the pricier side, but it's clean, service is fast and you don't walk out of there smelling like you sat by the fire all day. They have the option to sit at the tables where you cook the meat yourself, which I love, or you can have it done for you. Either way, everything I've had is delicious and I always walk out of there happy and full :)

Not All-You-Can-Eat, but Soot Bull Jeep is one of the few that use charcoal. Makes a difference in flavor. Pricier than other places as well.

It's in this awesome shopping center that also has karaoke, bowling and the best ice cream macarons you'll ever eat at Cherry on Top.

At Manna, you have to do the A.Y.C
.E. Black level for $28.99 - it is totally worth the extra $10 from the Gold level ($18.99).

Happy food coma!

I second Kristal's recommendation on Park's BBQ.  The original establishment actually started in S. Korea and they decided to build one here.  Very clean inside and the service is great.  You'll most likely have to valet park, since you will have a hard time finding parking in this area.  Good Korean BBQ will be pricey.  Expect about $40 for one platter of meat (which can serve two people).

Keep in mind that most Korean BBQ give you the slabs of meat and start the initial cooking for you and leave if up to you to pick the meat off the grill.  Last time I took my friend here, he was surprised he had to cook his own meat and was asking why it wasn't already cooked and served to him on a platter.  Culture-shock between Eastern and Western cultures.  You cook your meat to your own liking (e.g. Medium, Well-done, etc.).  That is authentic Korean BBQ.

Soot Bull Jeep is as authentic Korean BBQ you'll find outside of Seoul, right down to the charcoal smoke that fills the place.

While these are not necessarily authentic Korean BBQ places, Roy Choi is the master of Korean fusion cooking and its unbelievable!  Hunt down one of the 4 Kogi food trucks that circulate the city and grab some short rib tacos.  You will not regret it.  They even have one inside Terminal 4 (American) at LAX, so if you're lucky enough, you can even grab one on your way in!

His restaurant just outside Koreatown in the Line Hotel, POT is equally amazing and worth a trip!
