The Official Recession has been upon us for thirteen official months. It’s still not a reason we can’t enjoy life. This is LA -- we’ve got plenty of cheap options! We last had our pick of choice, low-cost international cuisine at both the Grand Central Market and Thai Town.

When times are tough we’re compelled to cut spending. It’s a reaction so instinctive that it seems hard-wired. Let’s ignore our wiring and do another thing to do to our wallet during The Official Recession. Let’s stretch it. Today we’ll seek value at the Koreatown Galleria’s Food Court, LAist’s latest Recession Obsession.

The Koreatown Galleria is clean. It’s very, very clean, and bright. It still has that new mall smell (despite having opened 2001.) The Koreatown Galleria is so immaculate that you may conclude it offers tasteless, sterile food. Not true. Here you'll find authentic Korean food in large portions with some fun extras.
