Korean in Paris
Hi, I'm looking to find some affordable Korean spots in Paris. Tofu houses or BBQ. I'm willing to go anywhere in the city, but mostly around the Latin Quarter.
Han Lim - one of the oldest Korean restaurants in Paris - affordable lunch specials - BBQ - right in the heart of the Latin Quarter - just off Rue Mouffetard at Place Contrescarpe.

Check out this site for Korean restaurants in Paris by arrondissement and others in France.
This is kind of vague, but theres a Koreans community in the 15 arrondissement near Beau Grenelle, Charles Michel, La Motte Picquet Grennelle. There are several restaurants in the area. I used to work around there and often had lunch at a restaurant on the rue de Javel and the rue Charles Michel, which I enjoyed, and which a kimchi expert told me was good.
Odori is very good and reasonably priced--18 Rue Letellier 75015 (01 45 77 88 12). I was told that the chef worked at WooJung (8 bd. Delessert 75016; 01 45 20 72 82) before opening his own place. WooJung is always full of Koreans diplomats from the OECD and Embassy. It's excellent but expensive. I tried Seoul (165 rue de Javel 75015; 01 40 60 60 60) but much prefer Odori.
Phyllis and I had a fine lunch at Sobane

I'll add my recommendation for a reasonably priced, reasonably good (although inconsistent) korean spot:
19 rue Fbg St-Antoine
M° Bastille / Ledru-Rollin
