Top 10 Fusion Foods in Koreatown LA

As Koreatown is diversifying with the mix of different cultures, fusion food restaurants are also appearing slowly throughout the region. Korean food is being fused with other cultures, creating new restaurants and hidden gems within the region. From fast and easy dine in and takeout options to gastropubs and tapas, you will find yourself falling in love with the Korean fusion foods.

Unlike traditional bibimbaps, cupbaps are fast and easy to eat on a budget when you’re on the go with other Asian dishes.
