Buying in Bulk

Where else can I buy in bulk besides Whole Foods/Gelsons (too pricey), WinCo (too far away), Sprouts (decent when on sale), and Super King (haven't tried yet)? I am specifically looking for nuts, and to a lesser extent dried fruit and sugar-free candy. Price is most important for me. Are there any wholesale places to look into in DTLA? I'm on the Westside FWIW.

Ground Beef and Lamb Koobideh

I could've sworn I've had koobideh with both ground lamb and beef mixed together. I find lamb to be a bit gamey, so cutting it with beef is great in my book. The one restaurant that I thought I got it doesn't have it (anymore). Anyone know of a restaurant that serves such koobideh?

Trying to Find Mexican Restaurants that Sell Meat Trays

I went to Top Valu and the lady wasn't very helpful because I don't speak Spanish. She ultimately said there wasn't a discount for larger plates (versus smaller plates).

Trying to Find Mexican Restaurants that Sell Meat Trays

I know that I can get meat trays like chile colorado, chile verde and steak picado from El Tepayac. I know that Chili Verde (the chain) also sells meat trays. Where else on the Westside (West LA, Mar Vista, Venice, Marina del Rey, Santa Monica, Westwood, Westchester, Playa del Rey, etc.) can I find a Mexican place that sells such meat trays? I am not looking for the "dry" taco meats like carnitas or carne asada but the "wetter" meat trays like chile colorado/verde and steak picado. And I just want the tray of meat - no rice/beans/tortillas/chips/salsa/etc included. Said tray is for a small party.

Korean (Meat) Market in Hawthorne/Lawndale/North Gardena

I know there are plenty of places in K-Town, and there is Freshia and Hannum in Torrance, but I would like to know if there are any Korean (meat) markets in Hawthorne/Lawndale/North Gardena. I knew there used to be one on Crenshaw and 150th but it closed down. I want to get some daeji bulgogi and some kimchi. Any leads? Thanks in advance!
