Korean Tak-Kalbi (or Dak-Kalbi) in LA

I'll be in LA for business next week and am looking to find a dish I absolutely loved while living in Korea. It was really popular in Seoul but since moving back home I haven't found it in either NYC or anywhere in the DC Metro area.
It's called Tak or Dak-Kalbi. It's spicy marinated chicken (red sauce) that is cooked at the table in a circular skillet with veggies such as sweet potatoes and shredded cabbage. Before it is served, duk (rice dough dumplings) are added. The long, roll-like version of duk, not the thin flat round version.
I've been craving this stuff for four years now, I think LA is my best bet. When I've asked Korean restaurant staff in NYC and DC about this dish, they look at me like I'm crazy.
Please help!
