Michelin-recognized gem Jun Won closes in Koreatown

Hosted by

Eater LA Editor Matthew Kang started regularly visiting Jun Won in Koreatown in college. Spicy black cod, galbi jim, seafood pancake, and bossam were a few of his favorite dishes at the mom and pop establishment. However, dining in was no longer an option during the pandemic. Jun Won tried — unsuccessfully — to survive based on takeout. But after 26 years in business, it announced this week on Instagram that it would close for good.
