I don’t live in LA, so I can’t comment on a specific catering company, but weddings at hotels in Korea usually have plated food (although sometimes said food is actually steaks and such).  I’ve been to several high end Korean restaurants in Seoul with amazing plated traditional dishes so in theory it really should be possible.

My ex-husband was Korean, and although we didn’t have a wedding, his brother did. They had plated dinners with korean touches, and it was really good!

I’m korean as well, as I was trying to figure out a way to incorporate it in, but our venue doesn’t allow any outside food. So I’m thinking of having the rehersal dinner with korean food. ๐Ÿ™‚

I had my paebek at the Wilshire Plaza Hotel – I have issues with them because the valet people would blackmail you for tip and won’t bring out your car! I had a separate paebek event~ kind of like a rehearsal lunch! But i have to say it was the nicest hall i’ve seen in Koreatown. I also lived there for 1.5 yrs, right in the middle of Ktown. ๐Ÿ˜€

But to answer your question, it was buffet style, and DELICIOUS. ALL the guests were REALLY HAPPY. A sit-down would not have worked since there were WAY more dishes…it would be like a what. 10 course meal? imagine having wait staff birng it all out.

If you pay A LOT of money, they’ll do it…but think about it – iit’ll take them so much extra staff to bring out all the plates in time, take it out, bring it back, take it out, bring it back (rinse and repeat!) and then wash them.  It will be costly.

to bride1010: I’m not sure if you have eaten LA Catering’s food…but I have at a friend’s wedding. Compared to many Korean wedding food experiences, LA catering was by far the worst. They left the food sitting out in the hot weather for hours and by the time we got in line to eat, the food looked unappetizing. Some of the food went bad and one of our friends got sick from it. I highly do not recommend this caterer if you are considering it for your wedding.
