it's always my preference to eat in koreatown late-night but sometimes i'm stuck with a couple of vegetarians tagging along in the group and they (well, one in particular will) get all whiny because it's so not-veggie friendly.
usually that's when i slip into thai mode, but i need some late-night recommendations. i love sanamluang but would love an option that doesn't come with flourescent lights. i tried torung on saturday and wasn't pleased; dishes seemed purposefully anglicized and yet carelessly cooked at the same time.
I would love to hear any recommendations for late-night dining of any flavor that offers up veggie-friendly fare, some lively ambience, no flouorescent lights, serves drinks would be a plus, is not cash only, and a big bonus for serving funk: smelly + spicy dishes.
