Sure Koreatown Plaza is a mall, but it’s a mall with one of the best food courts in Los Angeles. It’s most often packed to the rafters with locals who have been coming here for lunch and dinner for years. Head downstairs for the chow.
Many come here for the cold noodles but I come for the rabokki. Spicy as hell, rabokki is some kind of Asian-meets-college-dorm concoction, with ramen noodles smothered in sauce, hot peppers, cabbage, carrot and chewy rice cakes. Sounds gross? You haven’t eaten it. Town Noodle offers a monstrous portion, big enough for two, if not three.
