K-Town Blueprint--HELP

travelingsalesman | Nov 17, 2010 06:27 PM

Went over to Parks BBQ about two weeks ago. First kbbq experience. Great time, great food.
When I drove down there (East on Olympic), I passed a ton of restaurants that were packed. Plus there was a spot about 7 doors down from Parks, (right underneath the stairwell, if you are familiar with that stripmall), that had these huge pots on peoples tables (looked like a hotpot/stew). The lady said in broken english, too spicy for me and brushed me off...that is where our conversation ended unfortunately, because it smelled and looked great. I swore that I would return and make her feed me;)

Anyway, here is what I'm looking for...Can someone lay out a blueprint of maybe 4 or 5 (or more) restaurants in Ktown that are worth hitting and will give me a good sampling of different Korean style cuisines (I'll eat about anything, spicy is no problem) ?? This way, I can stop driving past all these places at night and saying "ooh, what's that?"

PS. I've noticed a bunch of Pho places scattered throughout the area, if any of those are worthwhile...i'm game.

Thanks in advance.
