Korean BBQ in OC?

I've never tried Korean BBQ - any recommendations in OC? Irvine, Costa Mesa, Tustin, would be closest locations, but I'm no stranger to Westminster and Asian areas. Any thoughts hounds? PS. I don't really go for fatty meats and such. Plus I date a vegetarian.

  1. Sagan, on Beach Blvd. across from Medieval Times in Buena Park. By far the best Korean in OC.

    1. There's Seoul Garden in Tustin on Redhill near the 5 FWY. I tried it once, wasn't bad. A little pricey if I can recall correctly.

      1. Shik Do Rak in Garden Grove is known as the House of Rice Cake Paper wraps.

        Perceptor did a review a while back

        1. I'll second shik do rak. Probably best to avoid Seoul Garden, since the all you can eat buffet aspect of it really kills the quality of food.

          1. Best Korean BBQ --> Myung Ga (AKA Lighthouse). It's in Garden Grove, on Garden Grove Blvd., just east of Magnolia. It's on the plaza on your left hand side.

            Cham Soot Gol has all you can eat Korean BBQ - the only place so far in OC. It's pretty decent. This is also on Garden Grove Blvd. and Casa Linda (I think - which is east of Magnolia).

            Also, a lot of ppl in the Korean community have been going to Morangak which is just west of Shik Do Rak.

            Shik Do Rak is pretty decent too - definitely better than it's orig. location in LA.

            Don't go to Seoul Garden. Haven't tried Sagan but considering that my parents don't go there (who are Korean), I wouldn't bother.
