Dol Sot Bibimbap recommendation for K-Town?
I'm taking a friend out in Korea Town tonight and have promised him an introduction to dol sot bibimbap. Somehow in all the places I have taken him he's missed out on this usual introduction-to-Korean-food dish.
Any recommendations for spectacular dol sot bibimbap? Not necessarily looking for a one-dish specialist restaurant, though that's fine. A search on these boards and Yelp proved inconclusive. I've been to Jeon Ju and was pretty underwhelmed.
Also, if you have any notes on what your recommended restaurant also does (or does not) do well beyond bibimbap, that'd be very much appreciated.
While it's not known for its bibimbap -- dol sot, or otherwise -- I would suggest Park's BBQ. Park's is known for its BBQ, but the bibimbap is more than decent. As they say, "Go for the bibimbap and stay for the Pork X bbq!"
Another option would be Soowon Galbi.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions!
I ended up taking my friend to Kobawoo based on an off-board suggestion. The bossam and doenjang chige were good as always. The stone bowl wasn't quite hot enough for the bibimbap and the rice didn't crisp up as much as I like it to, but, still, it was tasty.
My friends were introduced to three new dishes and liked them all. I'll consider that a good night. :)
I've been to Park's, Beverly Soon Tofu and Soowon Galbi previously and enjoyed them. Haven't yet been to Seongbukdong, but am looking forward to trying it.
