"Hi Maangchi! The article describes it this way: "It’s housed in a smallish, bluish building with three doors: one for Gohyang’s Singing Rooms, a karaoke parlor; one for the restaurant; and one for Kim’s Oriental Mart, a place piled high with Korean kitchen supplies." Sounds like they might be the same owner?"

"Here's the interesting thing about LA galbi: it's pretty similar to what is known in some places as "Maui-style ribs" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maui-style_Ribs The original recipe for which can be traced back to ribs made at Azeka's Snack Shop in Kihei, Maui: http://azekas.com/ Closed in 2006, but these ribs were done in a very thin flanken style: http://www.canada.com/topics/lifestyle/food/story.html?id=0bb459c3-ec63-4d37-abe2-ba0b172fc884 Reading the ingredients of the marinade, they sure sound like galbi ribs: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/522330 In fact more than one report claims that Azeka's was a "Korean general store" http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/member/views/MAUI-STYLE-KOREAN-SHORT-RIBS-1274289 I think it's possible that LA galbi originated in Hawaii, not Los Angeles, and that the originator was Bill Azeka's mother who developed this thinly-cut short rib style which Koreans later took to LA. I think it's telling that commenters on this blog from Hawaii have never heard of "LA galbi" but are familiar with the food. That's because LA galbi came from Hawaii, so there is no "LA galbi" there, only "galbi!""
