Find bulgogi and kimchi galore in Chinatown

Soju mojito at 8oz Korean Steak House
Yelp

Chinatown may sit just to the west of the Strip, but the understated Las Vegas neighborhood has a world of flavor. Comprised of a sprinkling of strip malls on and around Spring Mountain Road, Chinatown features unassuming storefronts and a number of restaurants that can each be referred to as “a hole in the wall.”

Those in search of a memorable meal in Chinatown can inspired by the area’s diverse array of cuisines. Despite the name, Chinatown doesn’t just features Chinese food; the neighborhood features Japanese, Vietnamese, Taiwanese, Thai and Korean cuisines. For those who crave kimchi, bulgogi and all things Korean, here are five restaurants to try in Chinatown.

Soju mojitos with a rice liquor kick

This charming addition to the Mountain Point Business Park offers a meat-focused menu with combos designed to be shared and cooked at the table. Diners can start with a soju mojito, made with the traditional Korean rice liquor, and share pork belly, beef brisket and octopus with sides such as kimchi stew and cold noodles at 8oz Korean Steak House. For smaller appetites, tofu hot pots can be customized with the level of spice.

Family-style Korean barbecue

The original Hobak Korean BBQ hails from South Korea, but this Las Vegas transplant promises to offer the same experience stateside. The inviting restaurant serves Korean barbecue that’s best enjoyed family style. Popular selections include wet-aged black angus beef, seasoned pork neck and jap-chae, a dish comprised of sweet potato noodles, vegetables and seasoned beef.

Bulgogi french fries at Q Bistro
Yelp

Korean fusion fare

Karaoke and Korean food are a match made in heaven, but that’s not the only inspired combination available at Q Bistro. In addition to tone-deaf singers, the restaurant is home to Korean fusion dishes like bulgogi French fries and sweet potato pizza. For traditionalists, there’s dol sot bobimbaap (rice with vegetables, beef and fried egg) and kimchi soup with tuna. For less adventurous diners, the menu offers American bar food favorites such as mozzarella sticks and mini corn dogs.

Kkulmat Korean Kitchen

Fried ice cream served Korean style

Like the bright, modern interior of Kkulmat Korean Kitchen, the menu here features straightforward and thoughtfully curated dishes. A delicious meal at this family-run restaurant starts with kimchi dumplings or spicy wings and moves on to galbi-jjim (spicy beef short ribs) or braised monkfish. For dessert, customers can order mochi and fried ice cream.
