Koreatown's Caffe Village Morphs into Cafe Korobokgur

Matthew Kang is the Lead Editor of Eater LA. He has covered dining, restaurants, food culture, and nightlife in Los Angeles since 2008. He's the host of K-Town, a YouTube series covering Korean food in America, and has been featured in Netflix's Street Food show.

Koreatown isn't lacking the expansive, casual coffee, tea, and snack shop that's perfect for students to lounge around in late into the night. Caffe Village was an old-timer on 8th Street that was ready for an update, with Cafe Korobokgur stepping in its place some time in January. Touting a similar snacky menu of ddukboki, Asianized pastas, and salads, the cozy Village space is now a bit more stark, though with more seating to accommodate those working on laptops or texting friends on Kakaotalk. For desserts, expect to see a variety of macarons, waffles, ice cream, and shaved ice to go with a rather expensive lineup of coffees and teas, which is par for the course in K-town. [EaterWire]
