  6. I'm in Long Beach and would love to go on an outing. Restaurants would be cool, but also would love to go explore KTown for some kitchen supplies! I'm away the beginning of Jan, so if there is any meetups in late Jan or Feb, I'd love to come.

  10. Tiani ! I look forward to seeing you and your umma!

    Marie! we have to celebrate!

    Hi Cheryl! my email buddy!

    Char - there is a restaurant supply store in the basement of the Galleria Market !
    I believe there is another store on Western where Maangchi purchased her claypot the last time she was in L.A.

    Delores- I hope you had a wonderful surprise party! I remember how upset you were about missing Maangchi's meetup/potluck!

  11. Should we also have a Facebook event for the meetup?

  12. When you guys decide the event date, time, and place, please post here. Then I will link to the post from my FB page so that more people in Los Angeles area can join the meetup. It sounds fun!! : )

  13. Will do Maangchi! :D

  14. I can try. Might have to bring my 9 year old though. Week nights this month are tough, but when I know more info I can say for sure. I looked at the Koreatown list and there was only 2: BCD Tofu house and M Grill. Never been to the latter but I think it said its Brazilian?

    I don't have many suggestions at this point in time, though I know one day I want to do Dakgalbi!

  15. Hello Everyone!

    After receiving feedback ,we have changed our "hang-out" to Saturday , Jan.25th in Ktown.

    Please save the date and I will follow up with the info on the time and restaurant.

  16. I would love to join too!

  17. Oh darn! We are out of town for a soccer tournament this weekend. Next time! Really want to meet up with y'all again! So fun...and delicious!

  18. Ashley - I'm back! I'm available that Saturday, the 25th - let me know what to do. Anywhere is fine - the LA Restaurant Week website lists BCD/Tofu House on Wilshire and Bibigo in Beverly Hills. There are a million great choices - I've been eating kimchee mandu non-stop! George Higgins.

  19. Ana - It'll be fun!

    Kimchi D- I hope you can make it to our next one!

    Geohig- Welcome back George! I hope you had a good trip!You were away for awhile!
    I love kimchee mandu! Which Mandu restaurant? I now have Mandu on my mind :))! Do they offer other items on the menu ? Would you recommend the restaurant for our meet- up?
    I look forward to seeing you again on Saturday !

  20. I'd love to hear some suggestions and recommendations !

  21. It all depends what time on Saturday as I already promised my friend I'd come to her event. I really wanna meet up and see ya Ashley. I don't know if my Umma can make it but I'd love for you to meet the hubby!

  22. *******************************UPDATE************************************

    Date : January 25th

    Place: Korea Town Plaza Food court -

    Time: 1:00 P.M.

    I look forward to you seeing you there! :D

  23. Hi Ashley - The mandu was home-made, and the broth was seoulangtang from E Moon Oak across from Koreatown Plaza. Despite the Yelp postings, I love this place and the service for me is terrific. I haven't found a mandu place that is better than halmoni-made mandu, so I have some in the freezer ready to go at all times. I'll be there on Saturday - see you then! G

  24. See you there George!

  25. MY HOOD! I live a block or so away from the plaza, so I'll be there. I actually don't eat there much, but I love the market and Poong Nyun Bakery. On occasion I like Gamja Bawi in the court. Bosco Bakery Cafe roasts their own coffee beans and I like their patbingsu and sesame balls AND tapioca donuts.

    ANYWHO, see you there!

  26. How did your meetup go yesterday? I am sure you all had a great time and had delicious food together!

  27. Thank you for making it fun Guys! See you on our next meet up!

  28. Maangchi, We had a great time!
    we discussed our next meet- up at a AYCE Kbbq at a place called Oo-Kook -it was listed as the best AYCE on Thrillist ! ! Yum ! We are looking forward to this! :)))

    Keep warm Maangchi!

    Wishing you were here!

  29. Ashley, I'm so happy to hear that you guys had a great time and planned another meetup. I can't wait to hear more details! : )

  30. We will definitely keep you posted Maangchi!
    Just the other day, Alesha and I were talking about Korean food and Korean dramas and we both happened to follow the same Kdrama, "Let's Eat" ( 식샤를 합시다)
    I would like to recommend the series to you and your readers! I'm sure you will find it entertaining!
