Description

LA Weekly's Description

Soban is a slightly odd institution, nice in a way that's probably closer to the way your mom's best friend's kitchen is nice than to any decorator-driven slickness, run by a couple who speak minimal English but seem to make themselves understood; not especially cheap, but full of families. The cooking would go brilliantly with a glass of lightly chilled Beaujolais or an icy bottle of soju, but alcohol is neither served nor permitted. The menu is pretty small, but a lot of customers seem to come several times a week. The English-language picture menu is even smaller, yet there always seems to be something you've never spotted before. (If anybody gets to try the dish where you wrap meat and vegetables in big ggaenip leaves, which seemed to be on half the tables last time I was in, let me know how it is.) See full review.

    Don’t miss the ganjang gaejang, raw blue crabs marinated in an elixir of what seems to be a distillation of the animal's sweet juices.

    Soban is a slightly odd institution, nice in a way that's probably closer to the way your mom's best friend's kitchen is nice. The most famous dish here is probably the spicy galbi jjim.-Jonathan Gold
