Gamja Bawi

Address: 928 S Western Ave
Phone Number: (213) 387-5581

Located in the Koreatown Plaza food court, Gamja Bawi serves popular Korean dishes like dolsot bibimbap (rice and vegetables in a hot stone pot) and bulgogi (marinated beef) with rice. The term “Gamja Bawi” refers to people from Gangwon province, where gamja (“potato”) has been widely cultivated. Bawi does NOT refer to “rock” as many ignorant writers have published. Bawi is a modified pronunciation of bau, which is a dialectical suffix for marking a ethnonym. Last orders are taken by 8:00 pm on most evenings. Gamja Gol
