Please Make Note of Pleasure Palate Attendance Policies and our 3 Strikes Rule by clicking here before RSVP-ing to this Event. Cancelling your RSVP within 24 hours or not showing up at the event without contacting the Organizer ahead of time will result in a strike. 3 Strikes and You're Out! 

EVENT MUST KNOWS:

• We will meet inside the restaurant shortly before 7:00pm.  I will inquire about reservations.  However, please be on time in case they do not take reservations and may not be seated until a majority of our party has arrived.

• Family-Style Dining: Dining for this event has been designated as Family-Style. The food bill will be split evenly between all attendees. Attendees will be responsible for paying for their own beverages. Please note that flexibility is an important part of family-style dining, and if you want to take a chance on attending, you have to be amenable to what the group/AO will order. You don't have to eat everything that is ordered, but everyone pays equally, whether you eat everything or not. Why this policy? The goal for family-style dining is to allow for the entire group to sample as wide a variety of dishes as possible. If one or more attendees choose to order on their own, that limits the group's choices, which defeats the purpose of what Family-Style Dining is all about. In addition, most of the dishes we order will be moderately to very spicy. If this definition of Family-Style Dining doesn't feel comfortable, this may not be the right type of event for you. 

• Cost per person is expected to be about $30 - $40, depending on how much food you order, plus any beverages, tax and gratuity.  Please bring at least $60 in CASH (small bills preferred) to settle your portion of the bill. 

• Check out their Yelp reviews, where they've earned a 4.5 Star Rating so far: http://www.yelp.com/biz/dong-fang-lamb-kebab-los-angeles

• Parking is available in parking lot of the mini-mall where they are located (Southwest corner of Vermont and 11th St).  Street parking is available.  Be sure to read the street signs for any parking restrictions.

Someone had mentioned about a new restaurant in Koreatown that serves up meat and offal skewers much in the same way as Feng Mao does (where you order a number of skewers and cook them at your table).  What I believe is different about them is that they also offer an option for an "All You Can Eat" traditional Korean BBQ.  However, I think that might just be too much for our initial visit, so we will stick to grilling skewers and perhaps order some dishes off their regular menu to balance out all those spiced/seasoned meats we will be eating.

    A lazy busboy and disorganized waitress didn't ruin our meal.
