LA Meetup

By Maangchi

Hi, Californians!
I’m visiting my mother in LA soon, so I’m planning for a meetup between Feb 15-20. If you want to join, please email me at and let me know your preferable meeting date, time, and place, as well as your name and phone number. Don’t worry, I won’t give this information to anyone else, it’ll just help me organize the meetup.

I prefer to meet at a restaurant in Garden Grove, because there are many great Korean restaurants there. After I know how many people will come I’ll email you know the final decision.

I’m planning to film our meeting and post it on my website later, so anybody who wants to volunteer to be a cameraman/woman will be appreciated! Or if anyone has a house to host us so we can meet and cook some Korean food would also be fun.

Ooh whoo! I’m already looking forward seeing you guys!

    I just started reading your blogs! I hope you come back to L.A. (or… should I say O.C.??!!! haha) again! I’d love to meet you!!! Have you tried shikdorak in garden grove? It’s pretty popular. oh yea, and gilmok in cerritos.. I always wondered how they made the dongchimi gooksoo. (wako) ggooldwehji in koreatown (they have one in buena park too in OC) is pretty cool too. and also hamjibak in koreatown. they’re famous for their spicy bbq pork ribs.

    Chelsie Ahn,
    omg, Paul is your cousin? He filmed this video! Say hello to him for me! Next time if I have another Meetup in LA, I hope you can come with Paul! I’m going to make some sweet thing for you then. I started cooking since I was an elementary student, so I’m not surprised to hear that you enjoy cooking! Be careful when you use your knife though. Nice meeting you!

  3. Hi Maangchi…

    It’s my first time to post a comment. My cousin,Paul Whang, showed me this website. Paul oppa said that he’s been to the L.A. Meetup. I’m only 11 years old, but I really enjoy cooking. I enjoy looking at how you make yummy Korean food. ^_^ Thank you for the videos.

  4. Aww I am so sad that I missed this. I live so close.

    Cindy Menard,
    oh, thank you very much! Would you send me your contact number through my email at ? Then I will let you know when I plan a meetup in New York. I’m planning it sometime in the spring.
    Bye bye! : )
