Manson Lamps, I am a fan of both Koreatown and Little Italy. It is not uncommon for me to hit up both in 1 day!

Both areas are diverse neighborhoods. Little Italy may be/ or have a reputation of, being a bit cleaner and safer. But I do like them both!!

Manson Lamps, I looked at the pictures on the website. Looks pretty good. And they have a sweets deli, too??

I like my gal-bi without bone. It looked like theirs was bone-in to me?

Try San Soo Gab San, if you have not yet! Very authentic. Very good!

I wish I could have seen Koreatown when it was even MORE SO of a Koreatown!

Manson Lamps, San Soo Gab San is clearly not a part of the Koreatown area. In fact, it is part of Bowmanville which is a very quiet, clean, and quaint part of the city. I'm a fan.

San Soo Gab San also has a restaurant in, Morton Grove, I believe. But it is not as good. I believe they are not allowed to use charcoal grills, which is a MUST, for good cooking!!!

Try the one on Western and let me know what you think. They serve sushi, too!

There are thriving and growing Asian communities all around Chicagoland, both the city and the suburbs. It wouldn't surprise me if there aren't several large, majority Asian communities in Chicagoland in the near future.

What is are the boundaries of today's Koreatown?? I feel like it's a sprawl today. Although I've been to this area that had a few restaurants, a korean bar and a karaoke spot all in one block and I assumed this was Koreatown just south of Devon....but my friends would go at night so I didn't really pay much attention of the surroundings just that we were south of Devon and near North park University on Bryn Mawr by the river, there is a cluster of Korean and other Asian restaurants...do we actually have a defined Koreatown after most left Lawerence (Nearby is Little Arabia).

yea theres a few korean spots south of peterson and east of california. there was also a marlet arpund there too but dont know if its still around...i dont go by that area too much.

edgewater has long had a korean population also but theres not any real concentration of a population or businesses that could be defined as a koreatown.

Ahhhh I didn't realize Edgewater had an important Korean population! That's awesome! And Ok...the area around California and Peterson makes sense! I hope they designate an official Koreatown to boost business via local tourism. It always helps! Look at Argyle!
