Corner Place

Cuisine:Korean. Price: $$. Location: .

Despite its name, Corner Place is located in the middle of a narrow strip mall, surrounded by a Latino market and a bakery. While barbecue has won the casual spot a loyal following, the restaurant’s true signature dish is dong chi mi gook su, a traditional Korean cold noodle soup that’s best enjoyed on a warm summer day. Valet is nonexistent and finding a parking spot is known to be a bit of a headache, so plan accordingly.
