Where can I have a Korean 1 yr. old party (dol) in LA?
I'm looking for creative suggestions for restaurants (Korean or Korean-adjacent) to have my son's one year old birthday celebration (dol). I am looking for a place with good food, and not super expensive (Yongsusan just quoted me $33/person for a buffet). I would like to invite around 50 people, if possible. I'm not rich but I want to do something special for my kid (and our house is not big enough). Any ideas? This board was great when I was looking for rice cakes for his 100 day old party. Thanks in advance for your help!
You can do it at the Dragon chinese restaurant on Vermont. Few of my friends did it there and it was fine - I think the cost per person is under $20. They have lots of private rooms. Just decorate the room with some balloons and make the "dol sang" (head table) really nice for the pics. Also, guests seem to love slideshows of your baby for entertainment.
I attended one at the Oxford Palace Hotel in Koreatown ealier this year that was really lovely & the food was good too! Sorry, I have no idea what the price was.
