Kankoku Shokudo


Restaurants & Cafés


Even before this area became known as Koreatown, Kankoku Shokudo was the place to go to for full-blown Korean fare. It’s a funky eaterie in the izakaya style - that is, you’re there for the beer and makkoli rice wine as much as for the extremely spicy food. Staff speak even less English than Japanese.
