KORAKU RESTAURANTBy Jenny Kim | February 2nd, 2009
314 E. 2nd Street
Los Angeles, CA 90012
Hours: Mon-Sat 11am-3am, Sun 11am-12am
They don’t have their own website
RATE: 3 out of 5
TYPE: Japanese Food/Ramen House
PRICE: Under $15 (They only accept Cash!)
PORTION SIZE OF MEALS: Good portion for its price
PARKING: They don’t have their own parking lot so you have to find a paid parking somewhere near it. The restaurant is located at Little Tokyo in Los Angeles.
SERVICE: The service is not great. The Waiter/Waitress speaks limited amounts of English
POPULAR: It looks like the restaurant is very popular, considering it was crowded so we had to wait 15 minutes before being seated. Normally, we would not wait but we wanted to see what is so great about the restaurant.
RECOMMENDED: The place looks very small but it’s long. The ceiling is not appealing and it reminds me of an old Italian diner. They cook some of the food in front of the customers. Also, the women’s restroom is not made for anyone who is above 6 feet tall. I would not recommend this place because I have been to better places elsewhere. Unless you are from another state visiting Little Tokyo and have never tried Japanese food, you should try it. It’s not great and it’s not bad, it’s just okay.
WHAT TO ORDER: We ordered Tonkatsu (Pork Loin Cutlet) for $9.50 and it comes with Miso Soup, Mashed Potato, Lettuce, rice, ginger and it tastes really good. We also ordered Chahan (Pork Fried Rice) for $7.25 and it comes with soup. The chahan’s taste is okay but I’ve tried better near our own neighborhood.
WHAT NOT TO ORDER: N/A
