“I like the picture menu!”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Went to S. Cal last week and my wife wanted to go to Korea Town for Korean food. Right in the heart, Vermont Ave & Olympic Blvd is a strip mall with Nak Won. I have no idea what the name means and that's the point! I have no idea how to read Korean but the picture menu and a little help from the waitresses (they all speak English!) we ordered 4 dishes for the four of us. Superb! I had forgotten about it but they brought out a bunch of appetizer dishes: vegetarian kim chee and other assorted (I'm guessing this is standard in Korean restaurants as we've had similar before) vegetables. Free refills I might add. We had pan fried mackeral,Rice & assorted mixture in Stone Pot, kim chee pancake, and one other. All were quite the taste sensation. Quite tickling to the palate. I like to try different foods altho I stay away from exotic things like pigs blood, octopus, and jellyfish and I loved this restaurant. And the prices were not bad either. Try it, you'll like it!
