Myung Dong Kyoja (명동교자) (Myung Dong Kyoja)
3630 Wilshire Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90010
This Koreatown spot is known for kalgooksoo, which literally means knife-cut noodles in Korean. Made with a clam-based, chicken-based, or pretty much anything-based broth, the noodle soup is the definition of comfort food. Myung Dong Kyoja's other speciality, mulmandu, or boiled pork dumplings, come served in the light broth, along with ground meat, scallions, and a side of insanely garlicky kimchee. Plus, the restaurant has windows into the kitchen where you can see the noodles get made.
