Olympic Cheonggukjang

  • 2528 W. Olympic Blvd., Los Angeles, 90006, United States

MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

If Korean isn’t in your linguistic arsenal, you’ll need to pack a fluent friend for your journey to this well-regarded strip-mall spot, where the menu and the welcome aren’t available in English. Don’t be daunted though, as the food is worth it, with authentic takes on everything from boiled game hen stuffed with sticky rice to the namesake cheonggukjang—a thick stew made with intensely pungent fermented soybeans that are this nation’s answer to Japanese natto.

For those who aren’t ready to brave the beans, simpler dishes are still compelling, including a spicy seafood soup full of crab, shellfish and enoki mushrooms to a deep-fried whole fish. Of course, the banchan here is also a big draw, especially those spicy cucumbers or sweet, salty and dried anchovies.
