Korean Porridge ()If you're nursing a hangover, the L.A. Weekly's Jonathan Gold recommends heading to Koreatown for porridge. Bon Juk offers abalone porridge, or jeonbokjuk, that includes rice, water and abalone. Mountain is another option for porridge. It has a homier feel than Bon Juk and the wall menu is quite entertaining, Jonathan says.
