Need Korean BBQ Dinner Rec in OC

Am craving some Korean BBQ -- I hear the best places (in OC) are in Garden Grove. Any and all recs are appreciated.

  1. Depends what you're looking for. Shik Do Rak is famous for its dduk bo ssam, but I actually like the barbecue at Sagan in Buena Park better. And, of course, there's Kaju, which isn't barbecue but has the best soondubu in OC. :)

    9691 Garden Grove Blvd, Garden Grove, CA 92844

    Sagan Korean & Japanese Restaurant
    7801 Beach Blvd, Buena Park, CA 90620

    Kaju Tofu Restaurant
    8895 Garden Grove Blvd Garden, Grove, CA

    1. How about Tsuruhashi on Brookhurst in Fountain Valley? It's a small, grill in the table, bbq place. The tongue in lemon juice is particularly good.

        2nd. Was there again last night. Don't miss the Kobe short rib as well. They unfortunately didn't have kimchi fried rice yesterday ;>( which is another item that you shouldn't miss.

          This place is excellent but it is not Korean BBQ -- it's the Japanese take on it (yakiniku), which is not quite the same. If you like Manpuku in West LA, though, you will LOVE Tsuruhashi.

        1. Litehouse on GG Blvd. Across from CA market.

          1. A friend of mine swears by Cham Soot Gol in Garden Grove. They also do dduk-bo-ssam style.
