Where to Find Wood Chunks for Smoking

During grilling season Home Depot (and probably Lowe's) carries a pretty big selection. Over the weekend I saw four or five kinds including apple and cherry. It's in the aisle with the grills.

Does anyone have more specific information about the mussels place like an address? I'm heading to Paris next month for our honeymoon and have been looking for a casual moules frites place with no success. I tried googling Jean Bart without any results. TIA!

Best All You Can Eat Korean BBQ in Koreatown?

I liked Gui Rim but it can be a really long wait because it's a small place (both locations) and when I've been there they don't use the vent fans so it gets really smoky.

Try Tahoe Galbi
3986 Wilshire Blvd (at Wilton)
$15 AYCE, they have 6 meats available

katsuya encino - blah

Try Sushi 4 on 6 in the Office Depot plaza across the street (in the back corner). Their lunch specials are around $11 which is pricey but the sushi is really first rate and they give you a ton of food. It's actually a bargain because their regular menu is $$$ and it's the same fish. Regarding Katsu-ya Encino, I agree that the lunch specials are pretty blah, but I think they focus on the creative sushi/specials like spicy tuna on rice cake, etc. I like the Studio City location, but I've never had the lunch specials there.
