Freshly made sesame oil in Koreatown?

troublemaker | Dec 31, 2010 11:54 AM

A while back I was shopping at McCalls when another customer came in excitedly talking about this freshly ground sesame oil she just picked up in Ktown. She let me have a whiff and it was the purest, concentrated aroma of sesame -- the oil having been made literally within the last hour. Of course I dropped the ball and failed to ask her where exactly she went to get this stuff, but it definitely wasn't at a market, and instead at a place specializing in sesame oil. This was over a year ago so I'm unsure whether my memory is right here, but I believe her mentioning it was somewhere in the vicinity Pollo ala Brassa off Vermont. Any idea where this might be?
