I'm terribly conflicted about Korean sushi places -- O-dae-san sounds marvelous, but I can't get the image of the scrappy Korean restaurant owners waiting until 7am or 8am, hours and hours after the freshest catch has been gobbled up by the better sushi bars, to make a killing ramming down the prices on the scraps.
Tell me it ain't so... ? I genuinely don't know if it's the same out here as in, say, NYC.
Needless to say, places like Sa Rit Gol and Soot Bull Jeep and Yongsusan are among my favorite places in the universe to eat, and yes I have had the good fortune to visit Seoul.
That article by Gold is, in fact, pure gold. I used to refer to it often.
