A recommended place to visit in Korea town. There is a good court on the top level and a place with famous corn dogs, as well as authentic Korean tea. Across the street be sure to check out Han Bat Sul Jung Tang, a traditional Korean ox bone soup that will fix a cold in a heart beat. It is loved by the locals and myself who will drive miles to have it.
