"I've been in LA Koreatown this summer - I wish I had run into you! The korean food here is unrivalled anywhere in the world - except Korea itself, and some people say it's even better than Korea with the abundance of fresh, cheap produce, meat and fish available to the restaurants here. Having lived in NY and Queens for many years, I can say the korean food here is much much better. The korean food within a 10 minute walk of where I'm staying beats all of NY and flushing, and I don't even live in the real heart of Koreatown."

"it's funny that someone is complaining about chewy naengmyun noodles -that's what makes it so great! do you know how the restaurants are able to make their naengmyun so chewy? Is there a specific type/brand of noodles you can buy from the store that are chewy like at the restaurants? I've never been able to make my naengmyun chewy, esp using dried noodles. Occasionally the fresh ones are chewy but it's hit or miss. Any suggestions?"

"Your cookbook is going to be great. I already have a very well-recommended Korean cookbook that supposedly has a lot of recipes, but your recipes are better and you have more!"
