You will learn about Korean food and products in general as well as about Korean culture in general. We will check out a supermarket and different stores and markets in Madang Courtyard and on Western Ave. We will look at traditional Korean clothing, visit a K-pop Store, visit the sesame/perilla oil pressing store..and much much more! We will get to see, and smell the freshly pressed intensely aromatic and flavorful oil. They take only cash if you want to get anything.
In the end, we will loop back around to Madang and learn about different Korean food and all eat together at the delicious new Jeong Yuk Jum restaurant. This is one of our new fave place for Korean food and bbq! The prices are fairly reasonable and we can do this family style so everyone can taste the different dishes.
If you can, bring cash so it'll be easier to do the bill for lunch. We make reservations for around 12 :00p. We generally keep the bill to under $20 per person. You don't have to stay for lunch if you need to leave early.
Please make sure to wear comfortable clothing/shoes & have sun protection. We will be stop and go walking about 2 miles.
PARKING: Garage parking entrance on Manhattan Place side (H Mart sign). We can get 4 hours validation from Jeong Yuk Jum restaurant or a few hours at other shops. After that it is $2.00 every 15 mins max $16.00. Otherwise, you could check for street parking.
One of our members was so helpful to let us know that there is a parking lot area where there is no fee (as long as there is no event going on around the area).
3846 Wilshire Blvd., right next to the Bank of Hope, across the Star Night building. Last time he parked there he noticed a sign that said 'Park at your own risk', but he didn't see anything weird. It is about a block and a half away from the MaDang Courtyard plaza.
