    Awww! Buena Park? I wanted to come but that is too far. I thought that since you were coming to Los Angeles that we would actually meet in Los Angeles! Orange County is just too far for me.

    Now I’m really sad and disappointed. Maybe next time. Have fun.

    How fun for you to be out here… I work that day, but if it ends up being Orange County like Irvine and is later evening it would be fun :)

    Have you heard of KogiBBQ truck? kogibbq.com Its a Korean food truck here in So. Cal and they are famous for their Korean BBQ tacos! We should totally do something with them!

    I would love to attend this. I’ve been a visitor of this site for a while and decided to sign up.

    I think that this is great! I also think that Korean Town in Los Angeles is the perfect spot. There are numerous restaurants to choose from here. You can’t go wrong in Korean Town L.A!

    Wish I could make it. I will be on the West Coast but WAY south of LA.

    I am sure you will have a good time with your Mom.

    O M GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG! Come to San Francisco Maangchi! I’d love to meet you!! :P

    I guess the Galleria would be okay but the food there isnt that good and it’s not too clean. Maybe going to Garden Grove again would be an option too since they loved your Honguh muchin alot last time. Haha! Have fun everyone!

    Koreatown in Los Angeles has a lot of delicious places! I saw somebody suggested the Ktown Galleria food court which is good because of all the choices and seating but Cho Sun is great too, more of a sit-down restaurant type and not as casual. Ahhh… Ktown. So many little restaurants that specialize in a certain dish, so hard to choose. I can’t wait for the meet up!

    How about in Irvine??? Lately, the Korean Community has been growing and we now have the first Korean-American Mayor :-)

    It will be a dream come true to finally meet you Vis-à-vis (face-to-face). Good luck!!!!

    Yippie!! This time I won’t miss the meetup!!

    I also think that Koreatown Los Angeles has great places to meet.

    I think that a restaurant might want to throw us out if we spend too much time there…and they generally don’t allow you to bring food – maybe some people want to bring food they cooked and show it off??

    If we met in the foodcourt of either the Koreatown Galleria mall or the Koreatown Plaza mall, we would be undisturbed and we can put tables together. The foodcourt in the Galleria is bigger – more tables etc.

    Just an idea…
    what does everybody else think??

  14. Hi Maangchi,

    Do you plan on visiting the bay area in northern California? I would love to meet you!

    I have been obsessed with your website and recipes for awhile now and would love to meet you! There are a few good places in Orange County (where I live) but the best Korean food in the area is in K-Town in LA. For BBQ there is a great place called Cho Sun… I cannot wait!!

      Hi Carrie,
      I’m looking forward to meeting you, too! Email me if you want to come. 6 people already have let me know they could come! I’m collecting more suggestions about the meeting place and what to do during our meetup. I will email you when I know all the details.
