Rice Noodle Wrappers

I recently ate at Mu Dung San Korean BBQ and they had Rice Noodle Wrappers. I heard Manna also has them.
Does anyone know if other locations have them?
Well, it depends on what you are looking for.
Soot Bul Gui Rim is AYCE and is relatively cheap; the meat is not bad quality either. I like the one on Vermont just north of Third. And it's charcoal bbq. http://www.chowhound.com/topics/399355
Toad House is on the funky side (but good funky) and is for the more adventurous eater. They have fabulous pig trotters which you can order in a combo meal. But if you want to stick with the more apropos stuff (beef) it's actually quite good.
Honey Pig is very popular but it's one of my least favorite places for many reasons. I do like their chili ribs though. I mentioned it because they have rice wrappers.
Cham Sut Gol is the more refined of the bunch and has very high quality meat but it's a little pricier. They also have killer pickled daikon radish to wrap your meat in. They use charcoal too. http://www.chowhound.com/topics/387311
There is another place that I just went to that uses rice paper wrappers but I've forgotten the name; I'll post it as soon as I remember.
a million places serve this now in ktown tho i still prefer the wasabied dicon slices (mentioned by Bon Vivant) instead.
another one (and i believe one of the first?):
Shik Do Rak

Toad House is predominantly a sam gyup ssal/chadol baegi place w/ only the hot iron grill. (I don't truly consider sgs and cdbg as "BBQ"). SBGR and SBGR2 are just lousy environs to dine in due to obscene amount of smoke, fake use of charcoal and now freezing temperature in dining room(s). serving duk bo sam doesn't automatically yield good KBBQ as attested by majority of the restaurants mentioned in this thread so far. g'luck!
