Any Good Places to Eat Near Wrightwood?

Planning on going to visit Mt. High on Sunday. Does anyone know of any good lunch places around that area? I've never been.

Where can I have a Korean 1 yr. old party (dol) in LA?

You can do it at the Dragon chinese restaurant on Vermont. Few of my friends did it there and it was fine - I think the cost per person is under $20. They have lots of private rooms. Just decorate the room with some balloons and make the "dol sang" (head table) really nice for the pics. Also, guests seem to love slideshows of your baby for entertainment.

Looking for your favorite Mandu (or Mandoo) recommendations.

I personally like the mandoo at Myung Dong Kyoza (sp)? It's on 6th and Kingsley? I think... They specialize in homemade knife cut noodle soup but their mandoo is what makes me go back everytime. There's only one kind but it's reallllly good!~

Sushi Gen last night - YUCK!

Sushi Gen is one of my favorite restaurants....I think you must've had an off night although I've never come close to having a bad experience there...and I used to go at least once or twice a week for the past 3 years (until I got pregnant and had my baby)! But I ALWAYS sit at the bar so maybe sitting at the tables is not such a good idea?

Paris Baguette on Western Avenue -- a delicious bakery!

Yes, their chocolate croissants are delish! I've never been there but my mother-in-law brings me pastries from there about twice a month!

Shabu Shabu House

My husband and I used to frequent Shabu Shabu House at least once a week. But we got very tired of the long lines and the feeling of being rushed to finish our food in 15 minutes while hungry people were standing around by the entrance just glaring.

We live in Glendale and they just opened up a shabu shabu restaurant in the Glendale Marketplace called Boiling Point. IMO, the beef is better than Shabu Shabu House, their Goma sauce is the best I've ever had and their vegetable plate has alot of variety - 12 different kinds(although I've never counted...that's what the server told me). Prices are reasonable ($16-$20 range), service is excellent (the owner will almost always come and greet you) and the decor is very nice. They also offer tasty martinis, sake and beer. And because it's right by the movie theater, we usually have dinner and a few drinks and then catch the 10:00 show.

We're so glad that we don't have to drive out to Jtown or the Westside anymore to get our shabu shabu fix!~ I hope this place stays around for a long long time (or at least until we move). =)

your top five cheap restaurants in northeast LA/glendale/pasadena?

Last time I had Conrad's, we ordered the fried chicken and it came out extremely undercooked - never went back after that.

Looking for a really good sushi experience~~

I just had a baby and am dying for excellent sushi since I wasn't able to eat any during my pregnancy. The hubby and I love Sushi Gen in J-Town but we'd like to try a new place - somewhere with excellent service and costs around or under $200 for 2 ppl. Any suggestions?
