1) She lives in Torrance.
2) She doesn't like driving more than she has to. Therefore her first korean BBQ experience was in this area. It was, needless to say, a bad one.
3) When I suggested Korean BBQ at Soot Bull Jeep, she said she didn't like it, and that she preferred (ed: flavorless -MT) Mongolian BBQ (!!) to Korean.
4) After much verbal canoodling, I finally got her to taste Soot Bull Jeep. She loved it.
Now she is trying to discover excellent KBBQ in her neck of the woods... Torrance, Gardenia, Redondo Beach.
I keep telling her that she's in a Japanese mecca... that she should concentrate on excellent food to be found locally... perhaps yakitori. But alas...
I don't hold out much hope for this request, but if you have surprised me before.
I anxiously await your responses, fellow hounds...
