Korean BBQ that will accomodate fish-only?

Not rabid about it, but have been segueing into a fish and veg diet. Does this rule out Korean BBQ? If not, any recommendations on places that might accommodate?

    Woo Lae Oak on LaCienga has salmon and veggie options on their menu.

      Yes, this effectively rules out any proper Korean BBQ experience

        Many places have baby octopus and some kind of pike or mackerel to BBQ. If you go to a buffet you'll also find things like tofu chunks, produce items like lettuce leaves, garlic, onions. I'm not sure what is used in pickling the kimchis, but I don't think it's meat. Many of the panchans are seafood or veggies. The buffets also usually have sushi or sashimi.

        There's a buffet in Torrance that I've done pretty well even when avoiding the red meat items in any quantity.

          Thx! Not sweating small stuff (ie what may or may ot be used in pickling) -- but a seafood BBQ sounds like it has potential to be tasty if not whole hog 100% authentic.

            Not the best BBQ place, but Suhrabal has a seafood combination which inlcudes: shrimps, octopus, scallop, squid, fish, and mushroom that you can do your own grilling. Hugh portion for very reasonable price.

              Thanks -- just curious -- what makes it not the best? "Not the best" and "seafood" used together in a sentence always makes me a little apprehensive...
