Soot Bull Jeep may be the best of L.A.'s 100-odd Korean barbecues, noisy, smoky, with all the bustle you'd expect in the heart of a great city, a place to cook your own marinated short ribs and baby octopus, pork loin and tripe, above a tabletop heap of glowing hardwood coals. If you are new to this sort of thing, a waitress will return periodically to make sure that your ignorance of cooking times injures the meat no more than absolutely necessary.
