Shin Jung Soon Tofu & Korean BBQ

Los Angeles

When it’s 4am and you’re starving, this Koreatown barbecue staple has your back: diners can cook beef, chicken, and pork, in addition to more exotic bits like beef tongue and large intestines, on table-side grills 24-hours a day. The built-in cooking ranges are surrounded by booths where guests sit and prod raw savories, with overhead range hoods softly humming as they suck up the errant vapors. If you don’t want to smell like smoky meat (which does happen, but who really cares when it’s 4am?), opt for a prepared kimchi & pork casserole or bean paste & seafood stew. Shin Jung Soon doesn’t sleep, but you likely will after this meal.
