I need recommendations for the following as I keep hearing that LA does these much better than SF:
2) Soup dumplings (xiao long bao)
4) Japanese izakaya
6) Korean BBQ
7) Non-bbq korean
I will be staying in Santa Monica but will travel for food so location not too much a a big deal. Price not an issue either. Just looking for best food. Any other specialities or items that LA does particularly well in asian cuisines?
Thanks for your help!
