Southern California has long been a hub of culinary innovation. The French dip sandwich, the cheeseburger and the hot fudge sundae were all created in the Golden State. That spirit of innovation still thrives in Irvine’s Diamond Jamboree, a multicultural shopping center that has established itself as Orange County’s premier international dining destination.
As fashion blogger Jill Wallace explains in this video, one of the Diamond Jamboree’s main attractions is Urban Seoul. A product of the area’s culinary melting pot, Urban Seoul specializes in fusing traditional Korean cuisine with Southern California classics. Standout delicacies from its current menu include Gogi sliders made with marinated rib eye, spicy pickled cucumber, American cheese, kimchi and fried onions. Its scrumptious take on Venezuelan arepas, comprised of spicy pork, pickled onions, queso fresco, cilantro lime sauce and an open-faced grilled corn cake, is also highly recommended.
