Korean recipes and restaurants in East Bay?

Hi Chowhounders,

So I've gotten hopelessly, maddeningly hooked on Dae Jang Geum -- very fun, but pathetically bad for my social life, work commitments, sleep patterns, etc. It makes me (of course) want to eat and cook.

I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations for

(1) Recipes a la Dae Jang Geum -- any cookbook or website recommendations? Or even ways to figure out what to search for?

(2) Excellent Korean restaurants in the Bay Area (I know it's not going to be royal kitchen food, but what's out there?)

thanks so much!

    1. recipes are on the Home Cooking thread. Look up posts by Hannaone, he posts a lot of Korean recipes and has a website.

      1. Sura was for a while offering what they called royal cuisine. They took it off the menu, but you might ask them if you could get it by special arrangement. Some info:
