Arirang Restaurant Review

: After you emerge from a small elevator that you enter in a nondescript building in the middle of Koreatown, you’ll find this hidden Korean noodle shop and restaurant, populated by noisy groups convening at the long tables. Portions are huge and everyone seems to order some version of Mama’s chicken soup with homemade long noodles. Try the chicken kar-jeabe with potatoes, onions, green onions and garlic. Keep it fairly bland or kick up the heat with the chili paste set on the table. All meals come with spicy kimchi. There isn't really anything in the form of dessert, but you can wash down your food with a bottle of the Korean beer, OB.
