Tips

  • Small and intimate, offering inventive Korean-inspired bowls that rotate with the season. When in doubt, add the sous vide egg.
  • Unbelievably inventive and tasty food. No sign or anything, just look close!
  • This tiny restaurant in East Hollywood is cooking up some of the most inventive, and affordable, cooking in Los Angeles through the efforts of Kwang Uh, who worked at Noma.
  • Baroo is the perfect example of never judging a book by its cover. Nestled in a Hollywood strip mall, the Korean spot is gaining a following and we highly recommend you order the noorook to see why.
  • Kimchee fried rice is delectable
  • Its not existing anymore
  • Fresh, clean and mostly healthy and light modern Korean dishes. But boy was that kim chee shrimp toast special ! Dudes not exactly service oriented but i aint mad at em!
  • Super fresh, tasty and nerdy. Love it!
  • This tiny James Beard-nominated restaurant, hidden in a strip mall in East Hollywood, would be voted least likely to succeed on looks alone. Go anyway. Just call ahead to confirm they're open.
  • Too cool for school unmarked LA place in a nondescript East Hollywood strip mall. Parking is a nightmare and there are about 10 seats, but the whole ordeal is worth it for that kimchi fried rice.
  • Noorook at Baroo
  • order everything - this is the noorook
  • Kimchi Fried Rice is amazing!
  • The seaweed dish is
  • The seaweed dish is light and lovely; fruit in the kimchi rice is a nice touch
  • Kimchee fried rice sounds like it would be plan but it's yummy! Lots of flavors and a little on the salty side. Small ish portions.
  • Everything is really good but the Asian Fever was my favorite!
  • No sign outside so it's easy to miss. Space is cramped and very casual. Noorook is like a beet risotto. Don't come hungry because portions are very small.
  • Beautifully interpreted Korean-Californian with an emphasis on fermentation and pickling. Located in an improbable strip mall setting, like all good LA finds. $13 for a taste of culinary innovation.
  • It's like the Korean version of Sqrl, but no pastries. I had the kimchi fried rice, which had layers of flavor and a yummy pineapple fermented juice kimchi to add to it's delicious complexity.
