LASUNG HOUSE: Bringing Nostalgic Korean Comfort Food to K-Town

On6thAvenue Hospitality opened the doors to its latest culinary venture, LASUNG HOUSE, located on Olympic Blvd in the heart of Koreatown. Known for their beloved Korean barbecue concepts, Quarters and ORIGIN Korean BBQ, the restaurant group sought to bring a new kind of dining experience to Angelenos—a taste of ‘home’ with hearty, homestyle Korean offerings that speak to the soul.

“Lasung,” meaning “City of Los Angeles” in Korean, is a tribute to the indomitable spirit and rich heritage of first-generation immigrants who braved the vast Pacific to pursue their dreams in the City of Angels. The restaurant’s minimalist design contrasts beautifully with its bountiful, generous menu, creating an inviting haven where friends and families can gather. Here, over heaping plates of traditional, handcrafted Korean comfort food, memories are both revisited and born anew with each savory bite. It’s a place where the spirit of togetherness and celebration thrives, echoing the resilient journey of those who made Los Angeles their home.

Handcrafted with Love: Signature Jumbo Pork Cutlets & Pairable Offerings

At LASUNG HOUSE, the essence of Korean cuisine lies in the meticulous preparation and generous portion sizes, reflecting the love and care of home-style cooking. The standout star of the menu is undoubtedly the Korean-style Jumbo Pork Cutlet (왕돈가스), a dish that transports you back to the special nights out of the 80s in Korea. Each cutlet is meticulously tenderized and gently fried to a golden-brown perfection, resembling a large rib-eye steak. Topped with a house-special sauce that simmers for hours daily, this giant portion is served on a massive round dinner plate with a scoop of rice, macaroni salad, cabbage salad, and a bowl of cream soup. The side banchan offerings, including diced radish kimchi, pickled yellow radish, and jalapeno pickles, are all made in-house, adding a delightful crunch and tang to every meal.

For those seeking an adventurous twist, the Spicy Pork Cutlet (매운왕돈가스) is drizzled with a rich, fiery sauce that ignites the senses. If you fancy a Korean take on Italian-style chicken parmigiana, the cutlet can be topped with cheese and torched tableside, creating a mesmerizing culinary spectacle. Non-meat eaters aren’t left out, with options like the Fish Cutlet and a Set of Fish and Shrimp Cutlets ensuring everyone can partake in the jumbo-sized delight.

A Culinary Tapestry of Flavor and Nostalgia

Complementing the hearty cutlets is the Spicy Cold Wheat Noodle (Jjol-myeon, 쫄면), a dish that captures the essence of Korean street food. The chewy wheat noodles, topped with crisp, thinly sliced cucumber, fresh red cabbage, and bean sprouts, are mixed with a bold and spicy gochujang-based sauce. This perfect harmony of textures and flavors makes it an ideal dish for sunny Los Angeles days. Another nostalgic offering is the ragu spaghetti, a nod to the era when Western dishes first found their way into Korean homes. This simple yet comforting plate is home-cooked with chopped vegetables and simmered with minced beef, evoking memories of family dinners past.

To round out the meal, LASUNG HOUSE offers refreshing all-natural beverage options like the Rice Shikhye Slush (식혜슬러쉬), available in original rice and sweet pumpkin flavors. This gluten-free and vegan fermented rice and malt drink, crafted over 10 hours daily, aids digestion and serves as the perfect dessert drink to cap off a comforting meal.

In addition to the in-house dining experience, LASUNG HOUSE extends its culinary delights to your home with frozen versions of its Pork and Jumbo Shrimp Cutlets, jarred pickled jalapenos, diced radish kimchi, yellow pickled radish, and ragu pasta sauce. These offerings, along with the all-natural Rice Shikhye drink, are available for pick-up, ensuring that the comforting flavors of LASUNG HOUSE can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere.
