Our Story

Bulgogi House was founded in 1992 by Young Park, who combined fresh local ingredients and his business expertise to create a quality Korean barbecue experience in Los Angeles. However, the true foundations for his restaurants are their quality meats and his grandmother’s secret sauce, which customers often ask for by the bottle. Park’s grandmother created the recipe while living in Suwon, a South Korean city known for its barbecue. The process involves steeping the meat in his grandmother’s marinade for at least 24 hours, which makes the beef tender and flavorful. Young Park has now brought this unique, time-tested recipe to California through the Bulgogi House restaurant chain.
