I know this seems a handful of requests but I'm actually moving this question over from the the General Topic Board, where Thi N. defended Los Angeles as the premier Chowhounding city and touted, especially, our offerings in these cuisines.
I'd love everyone and anyone to answer, though of course I'm hoping Thi N. weighs in, too.
What are your favorite Korean, Armenian and Vietnamese restaurants. I live in Santa Monica but distance is no obstacle.
Looking forward to trying them --
