Korean Restaurants in Highland Park

Select Local Merchants

From the bustling streets of Times Square to the equally vivacious streets of Hong Kong, people walk around with smiles after enjoying the japanese barbecue cuisine at Gyu-Kaku. The restaurant has more than 700 locations worldwide, each rooted in the belief that some of the strongest bonds between friends are forged at the dinner table. Groups dine on a huge variety of Japanese dishes, from popular meat and veggie dishes such as Harami Skirt Steak, Kalbi Short Rib, and Mushroom Medley - to unique Japanese-American appetizers such as the Spicy Tuna Volcano, Pork Gyoza Dumplings, and Chicken Karaage. The real excitement takes place around individual grills, however, where diners can barbecue their own slabs of filet mignon, grilled ahi tuna, or chicken with basil sauce until they are ideally tender or encircled by on-duty firemen.

Folks are noticing Executive chef Michael Chang's brand of healthy Korean comfort food?so much so that in 2013, Pasadena Weekly readers voted Osek Korean Restaurant the spot with the best Korean food in the city. But he's not just concerned about flavors and textures: color is important for Michael, who makes sure each dish includes the five hues traditionally associated with various organs of the body. He layers kimchi, ham, and fried eggs, stirs dumplings into spicy broths, and braises ribs until they're fall-off-the-bone tender. All of the dishes can be customized to spice preference, and the sunlit dining room with a casual atmosphere adds to the experience.

Superheroes watch over Tangier Korean BBQ, keeping the peace in street scenes painted on the walls or as cartoonesque sculptures flexing against the backdrop of exposed, weathered wood beams. Wait staff weave between the futuristic super statues carrying trays of Korean dishes such as bibimbap and kimchi stew. Tangier's signature all-you-can-eat Black Angus smorgasboard pummels hearty appetites with short ribs, chicken, vegetables, and other flavors, which deluge tables nestled between cozy booths and mod red chairs. The drink menu embraces the same Pacific flavors, featuring Sapporo beers and mojitos with lemongrass and lime. Couples chat at café seating on the outdoor patio, where they can sup under the stars or challenge the moon to 20 questions.
