Koreatown,when the lights get low this the place to go. The KTown Night Market is the manifestation of Asian markets after dark. It’s a night of celebration and revelation. More than 100 vendors on the street give you an experience based in Korean food reaching out over the Asian continent to tempt you with amazing tastes and gifts for you and your friends and family.
There were DJs and K-Pop singers, exhibitors of art and a Food Truck Alley with winners of the Food Network’s Great Food Truck Race show. An impressive dish was Jogassaki Sushi Burrito.If you’ve never had one it’s highly suggested.
This is an event they have yearly in Los Angeles,the Korean population turns out literally in the thousands. One can hear people saying “I’m glad I did not park here” as they get into a cab after leaving. The patrons that do park often walk for miles,and since some take it for a formal event that can mean meany fashion conscious women are wearing heels.
The stages with K-pop singers and bands blast throughout the evening as people dance and celebrate. Children of all ages take part in workshops dedicated to their culture with beautiful artworks and traditional pieces. There’s also Cool Haus, because there’s nothing better after hot spicy food than delicious ice cream. Basically, there is something for everyone’s taste buds.
People from every ethnic background and age came out, some even had pets. There was even a monkey on someones shoulder. Kids had face painting and some were even painting the faces of their parents. I’m not sure if the monkey got in on it or not.
