K-Town is getting its own food festival early next month and it looks like it could become a staple of LA's summer festival scene. How could grilled and smoked meats with magical flavors not be a hit? Details are slowly coming out for the event, set for August 8th, but here's what we know:

  • Jonathan Gold and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa are confirmed to be cook-off judges.
  • Confirmed restaurants include Beverly Soon Tofu, Byul Dae Po (Star BBQ), Ham Ji Park, Mu Dae Po, Park's BBQ, Seoul Jung, So Hyang, Soowon Galbi.
  • There will be a food eating contest
  • It will be held in the parking lot of The Summit (new development that 's not opened yet) on 6th near New Hampshire (also near the Wilshire/Vermont Subway Station)

There's no official website yet, but the festival's major sponsor and partner Yelp, has a listing on their website.
