Want to explore restaurants in Las Vegas? Ask anyone, and they’ll immediately direct you to the most popular places, most often in the hotels and casinos. But what if you’re looking for something else? Korean food perhaps? Well, you’re in the right place. For years now, this Asian cuisine has been a hot topic in Las Vegas. Spring Mountain Road, more commonly referred to as Chinatown, is looking more like Koreatown these days with its wide selection of Korean restaurants, offering everything from barbecue to soups, seafood, and vegetables. Of course, not all of them offer the real thing, but guess what, we found the best Korean restaurants in Las Vegas, Nevada. Scroll down to take a look.
1. Hobak Korean BBQ
Whether you’re craving Korean food for lunch or late in the night, Hobak Korean BBQ’s doors are open for you. Unlike most dining experiences, this establishment concentrates on a small menu that consists of handpicked premium beef and pork so you can savour the best of the best. And rather than the usual tabletop grill that uses gas, here you get to cook and char your selection of meat on charcoal. This is Korean BBQ done properly and authentically in a fresh and funky space.

Mexican food meets Korean flavors at KoMex Fusion Express. It’s one type of fusion cuisine you wouldn’t automatically expect.

The place has been successful ever since. All of its patrons can agree: KoMex Fusion Express is indeed a slice of heaven in Las Vegas.
