        thanks much!

          Last nite we noticed that they had changed their menu. We were a little disappointed, but then, it is still a good price. For $16.99 you get to choose from a list of 8 meats, they bring you the meats on a plate. You also get a hot bean soup at the end, they use to give you a cold noodle soup, but they now charge $1.99 for it. So worth it on hot days like we have had. I know they offer an AYCD, but I do not know the price on that. They have other combinations.

          OK...the restaurant is located on the Northeast corner of Carson and Norwalk. To be honest, I forget the name, signage is mostly in Korean. I googled it and found this:
          Market Place
          12201 E Carson St
          Hawaiian Gardens, CA 90716

              funny you mention that because I WAS JUST THERE LAST NIGHT!

              23 bucks if I'm not mistaken for ayce + 1 bottle of soju/person.

              16 for just straight AYCE. quite tasty really, my first time there. my new manna replacement.

                What is this place called? Extra $7 for a bottle of soju then?

                Don't know about Vermont and James Wood, but there is Manna which is just a block west of Olympic and Western (on Olympic) which has a $15 AYCE deal. I've only been there once, and the food was ok, as good as an AYCE BBQ place can be expected to be. I don't know if they have an AYCD deal though. It's a huge space and very noisy.

                1. re: anthead

                  to add: manna is very dirty with extremely poor service. there are plenty more AYCE kbbq joints in ktown that are clean, have much better quality meats and actually have something called "service".

                  The place you're looking for is called Ma Dang Sae.

                  1. re: Bert

                    ma dung sae is on vermont and connecticut right across from the galeria parking garage.
