My Guide to Koreatown

As much as I love traveling, there is nothing quite like coming home and going back to those hidden gems in your own backyard! A few months ago I posted my Instagram Worthy DTLA Guide and it got such great feedback that it inspired me to do some more city guides. After many months of digging and researching around Los Angeles to find all the best spots, our next adventure takes place in Koreatown, Los Angeles!

So today, I’m taking you through some of my favorite spots to grab traditional Korean food, coffee, markets, and of course beauty spots in K-Town! So the next time you find yourself in Los Angeles, be sure to bookmark this page to immerse yourself in a truly authentic Koreatown experience!


Do you guys have any spots in Koreatown that you love? I want to know! And would you guys want to see my favorite hole in the wall Koreatown beauty spots? Leave a comment down below and have a fantastic Monday!
