Nicolle Kelly, owner of Clockwork Translations, has high standards for affordable dining out. So when she mentioned Gang Lung Jip -3250 W. Olympic Bl. #305 Los Angeles, CA 90006 (323) 731-9770 - in the Koreatown Galleria , I knew it was going to be great…and it was.
A huge salad with typical Korean veggies and tuna and tilapia for under $6! This is topped with a spicy dressing and served with seaweed soup. All this in a fun food court where you can indulge your love of Sanrio afterwards. After walking around the shops you might need a treat so try the Cake House with beautiful pastries and coffee.
Don’t miss the supermarket on the ground floor. Interesting produce, massive selections of soy sauce, raman, and kimchi. Be adventurous and try some new condiments, kitchen products, and spices.
Now many of you may have heard of the wonders of the Olympic Spa. This is an indulgance that can be as low as $15 for spending time in the simple soak to $100 for an hour and a half spa treatment called Pure Bliss Aromatherapy Massage and Body Scrub . This spa experience begins with the Akasuri Body Scrub. After a citrus jojoba bead body polish, a full session Korean Deep Tissue Massage with aromatherapy oil blend and stimulating essential oil scalp massage followed by a botanical facial massage and chamomile mask. They even wash your hair at the end. Now you will be spending time walking around with other naked ladies so it is not for the modest. Gentleman, this is a great treat for your beloved for Valentine’s Day!
