Little Tokyo isn't the only nabe filled with charming boutiques and unique spots that highlight the cultural melting pot that is LA. Today's Perfect Saturday installment hones in on another Asian-American 'hood just west of Downtown: Koreatown.

This buzzing Mid-Wilshire hub is overflowing with fusion restaurants, Korean BBQs, stylish dive bars, two-in-one spots (golfing and massages, anyone?), karaoke bars and shopping centers (phew!), many of which are open 24 hours. Until we can somehow manage to never sleep, we're honing in on just a few stops to fill your weekend retail therapy itinerary. From where to eat a healthy breakfast by way of Brazil, where to shop local designers and where to soak like a true die-hard spa addict, your agenda awaits after the jump.
