    Ya, I would have left too. I can't understand waiting in line for 4 hours for any food.

    Hi,

    thanks for your recommendations! :)

    One question, have you ever been there? Can you say which one would be the best location for a little more "fancy" and/or "romantic" style?

    It's all Korean BBQ so none of those are fancy

    Kang Ho-Dong Baekjeong is right across from Toe Bang (what a name! makes me laugh every time) and is a great KBBQ place. I wouldn't say it's romantic, but it's certainly more upscale than other comparably-priced places.

    Also, if you want truly romantic KBBQ then go to Genwa on Wilshire.

    Just to pile on, +1 on on the Genwa recommendation. The food's good (for whatever it's worth: I was originally taken there by a KA gal I was dating because she considered the food to be a good balance of authentic/higher-end), and the atmosphere is much nicer for a romantic date than many of the alternatives.

    If by "fancy" you mean "relatively clean and shiny", there's always Chosun Galbee. It's a good place to take folks who haven't had Korean food before and want to ease into it. But it's probably more suited to a group date than a romantic one-on-one date.

    ^ If you're looking for a fancy Korean place to take a date then you might want to consider dropping KBBQ altogether and go to Soban on Olympic Blvd. A nice small space, arguably one of the very best Korean restaurants in the city. They don't serve booze though.

    Let me offer up an alternative suggestion: Soot Bull Jeep. After the dinner you will smell so much like charcoal and charred meat that you'll both need a shower. Offer the one at your place.

    In LA I've used 3 places.

    1. Paul at Wilshire tailors - best recommendation.
    2. Abi at Alandales in Culver City - very high quality alterations, but takes his time.
    3. Ali at Lizon Tailors - fast turnaround, low prices, decent quality.

    Hama Sushi is definitely one of the better sushi places in LA. Has anyone ever dined there? It's small, intimate, and only serves sashimi and sushi (no rolls/terriyaki or any kind of the american fusion stuff)

    Is Paul a bit pricey?

    Spent $330 on alterations for two jackets.

    There must've been a lot of work done. He's more expensive than drycleaner's alterations, but if you have a decent suit, you need a good tailor to work it.

    From my experience, shoes and tailors are two things you should expect to spend money on. Everything else can be bought cheap if it fits you alright.

    i've got a great tailor in long beach. Sandoval's on Seventh Street downtown. Does a great job, relatively quickly at relatively good prices.

    thanks!
    Sleeve length altered, some waist suppression, some back fabric taken out. He was very thorough and is a perfectionist. Good for my jacket, bad for my wallet.

    The Dress Code on 26th, just off San Vicente /SM is a good place too.
