        O-Dae San is now closed, I heard that it is being converted to a Korean BBQ place.

        I like A-Won too.

            No way! That is flat-out tragic. They had lovely, super-fresh hwe tup bap.

            We went to A-Won after J. Gold's review and the hwe tup bap wasn't nearly as good as Odaesan's, and certainly not as fresh.

            I have a friend who really likes Arado, but I haven't tried it yet.
