Saw a black 335i e92 with an e90post sticker on the driver's side, really dark tint, and gunmetal VMRs. Parked all the way at the back at Target in Factoria.

I really haven't found any really good pho here on the eastside. Acceptable ones are Saigon Jades in Kirkland (bun thit nuong is pretty good), Than Bros by Crossroads, and Pho House in Renton on Sunset (for their bun bo hue).

I'm always on a quest to find good food. Anyone have Korean recommendations? Kokiri in Federal Way is my fav...worth the drive down from Bellevue.
Try out Western Garden (Suh Won) down in Federal Way off Pac Hwy, the former owners of Mirak sold it and opened WG a block away - next to Trader Joe's in the shopping center. Mirak is still good... but WG is a lot better. For the Seattle area, I like Seoul Hot Pot (no BBQ) near Overlake for casual Korean. Blue Ginger has better service/atmosphere and has BBQ, but it seems more hit and miss than Seoul Hot Pot the past few months. Other than Seoul Hot Pot, I haven't found anything in Seattle that compares to what is available in Federal Way... and that is being generous.

was driving back north from seatac airport, suddenly a fcuking state patrol cop behind me pull to left to hov lane accel and cut back into my lane without any sign and it was very close that i almost hit him. i think he intentionally did that cause there was no car on the right lane and he continues cruising at 80+ without chasing on anyone and no light on and did the exact same thing to car in the front.

I would have, but I was in so much awe that I froze up. You know, to be honest I'm not really sure how to react to other BMW enthusiasts on the road. Do you throw up a peace sign or something? Plus, aside from AE's and grill, my car is too stock looking for anyone to even notice me.

I'm gonna have to try out Western Garden next time. My wife and I have been craving to get take out again soon from Kokiri (by far our fav kplace in the area). Ebisu told me to check out Palace - it's close by so this will be done sooner than WG/SW.

Seoul Hot Pot is decent, but I can't say that I crave it. The small dishes were severely lacking and that's make/break part of the meal for me. Blue Ginger is craps as far as I'm concerned and it's overpriced to boot.

I'm TOTALLY with you on the Federal Way props. It's worth the drive, but I just don't have the time now like I used to a few years back with the baby around.

JIBZ There's korean food in LA and then there's food here... *sigh* The bummer about my trips to socal is that there's never enough time to get everything done and then throwing in the commute/driving times, huh?

Lemon soju is like Mike's Hard Lemonade on roids....omg that stuff rox. smooth & sweet. the consummate chick drink...but perfectly acceptable for guys to shoot/guzzle. heh

It's not fair, I gotta move back down there lol.

I actually don't have that bad of a time with traffic. Just avoid the 405 and the 10 during commute times ESPECIALLY THE 405 - damn parking lot. I mostly take the streets going east and west in town like Pico, Santa Monica Blvd, Olympic, Venice, etc. Can get from BH to Santa Monica in like 15 minutes as opposed to 1 hour + if you took the 10. If you know the side streets you don't have a hard time at all. The bummer is having to leave Socal, just way too epic.

Sounds so good man....So where do you go for your KBBQ fixes? I'm having withdrawls and need some along with all those small dishes they give you with it - I have no idea what they are, but boy are they good!
