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.
