The restaurant is located in a small plaza in the heart of Korea town. Valet parking is $2 in the plaza - reasonable. The pork was cooked to perfection and was a quality cut of meat. The bahnchan that came with the meal was plentiful...More

It certainly is worth the wait. Try to time it and arrive early so you won't have to wait in line. I normally don't eat pork, but when I do I go to Kobawoo for their pork plate (Bossam). It is tender juicy and tasty.

With no reservation, the queue was long, and some parties simply left. We endured, and it was worth! Tried several pork dishes and they were simply great! Want to try unusual Korean food? Try here. But they don't take a reservation, I should warn you....More
