The Boiling Crab in KoreaTown, L.A. by Wilshire and Alexandria is a fast-paced, spot with fresh shrimp, crab legs, mussels, and more. They allow 1/2 pounds to be sold. My friends and I ordered 1/2 pound bags of fresh shrimp in the “whole sha-bang” sauce and we devoured every scrumptious piece in minutes.
When in L.A., take a moment, in a breath, and step into the world around you. Between the restaurants and street parking is the beautiful metropolis around you. Admire the streets, the palm trees.
The Source is a two-story mall centered around CGV, a movie theatre that features state-of-the-art 4DX and Korean subtitles. Korean movies also feature at CGV, welcoming fellow Korean and Korean American families and couples. A few restaurants like OOAK, and La Hauesteca are set up on the top floor, and beauty shops and Asian dessert shops are uprooted in the first floor. The Tupac mural is a trending, instagrammable spot for the public. The Source is a work in progress, still awaiting construction and more businesses to enter. However, the architechture highlights open sky, making it a refreshing four story mall!
