I just found this site and think it's fantastic.
I'm looking for 2 recommendations:
1) I have friends in town who love Korean food and need to find a good Korean restaurant to take them. I'd like to take them to a restaurant near Tarzana with a fun atmosphere where we can enjoy ourselves and eat BBQ meats (plus soon tofu chigae for me). I've read posts here about Soot Bull Jeep and that may be a possibility. I've also read recommendations for Woo Lae Oak, but the atmosphere may be a little more formal than I would like.
2) I've been looking for a good Mexican restaurant in the Newport Beach/Costa Mesa area - does anyone have any good recommendations? I haven't found one that rivals those in L.A. or San Francisco.
Thanks. Btw, I was happy to read about my favorite Vietnamese place, Thanh My.
