Who We Are
We are serving as ambassadors of Korean food and culture in Los Angeles.
We love travel, and we love eating delicious food. So we combined those two and created Taste of Korea Los Angeles. If you are visiting LA and are looking for something unique and fulfilling, other than walking the Hollywood Walk of Fame and hiking to the Hollywood sign, Taste of Korea is for you. If you live in LA and have had some Korean food, you would also enjoy Taste of Korea food tours because we will provide you with a new perspective on Korean food and culture. So please come join us!
Where is Koreatown?
Koreatown is located south of Hollywood and west of downtown. Koreans started immigrating to Los Angeles in the early 1900s and by 1982, the population grew big enough to install the sign “Koreatown.” According to the 2009-2010 U.S. census, there are more than 340,000 Koreans living in the greater Los Angeles area, the largest Korean community in the entire United States, and the largest outside Korea.
Given the long history and large population, it is surprising that in 2010 the Los Angeles City Council officially designated the boundaries of Koreatown, which are set from Vermont Avenue on the east, Western Avenue on the west, Third Street on the north, and Olympic Boulevard on the South. Koreatown, however, is rapidly growing and it is not uncommon to find Korean government agencies, restaurants, bars, and markets outside of Koreatown.
