LOS ANGELES | Buchun Gamjatang is one of the best places in Los Angeles to try the hearty Korean dish gamjatang. Gamjatang originated in the southern Korean province of Jeolla, but is most commonly associated with Incheon, where many people from Jeolla moved to in the late 1800s/early 1900s. It’s a spicy soup made from the spine or neck bones of a pig. It usually contains potatoes, cellophane noodles, dried radish greens, perilla leaves, green onions, hot peppers and ground sesame seeds.

The servings at Buchun Gamjatang are huge. I opted for the “small” lunch size and, along with the free rice and banchan, it’s more than enough to feed two. The broth is rich and creamy, with a decent kick of spice. The tender meat falls of the huge chunk of pork neck bone. You can’t help but keep eating, even once you’re full.

There are other things on the menu here, like bibimbap, and it’s all pretty good, but the main reason you come here is for the gamjatang.

Hot tip. If you pay by cash you get a free side serve of bossam (boiled sliced pork belly).
