I have recently had the pleasure of dining at two sister restaraunts in Manhattan, Danji and Hanjan. There must be LA equivalents. Any suggestions?

    No, not really at the level of Danji or Hanjan.

    Closest you'll find is a place like A-Frame or Chego, the latter being quite casual (in comparison to Danji/Hanjan) and if you go now you'll enjoy a slow moving 1/2 hour line.

    When The Line Hotel goes fully operational in Koreatown, Roy Choi has two restaurants opening up there, so those might be possibilities, but who knows ...

    I would give up sex for a day if a place like JungSik opened up in LA.

      A full day...as much as 24 hours...really?

        Ok, ok.

        JungSik was one of the undisputed highlights of my eating adventures last year.Well deserved second Michelin star for 2014.
