Dear SOS: My wife and I recently dined at the 14K restaurant at the Crowne Plaza in Washington, D.C., during happy hour, and we had the most wonderful and addictive ahi tuna tartare. We had it every day we were there. Can you please get the recipe for this? It seems like a simple five- or six-ingredient dish with fried wontons, but I just cannot seem to figure it out. Thank You, Matt Euen West L.A. Dear Matt: Simple yet bold with bright, fresh flavors, this dish makes the perfect appetizer whether you're planning for company, a party or even an intimate meal.

A salad like this could be a lot heavier, but I've kept it light by using a small amount of oil in the dressing and noodles that aren't deep-fried. The crisp lettuce and fresh vegetables add texture, while cooked shrimp makes this a substantial salad indeed. If you prefer, you can substitute lobster or crab meat. For even more flavor, punch up the wasabi--make the dressing as hot and spicy as you'd like.

Korean food in Seoul restaurants is, surprisingly, not very different from that in Los Angeles. There isn't the sort of gap that exists between Mexican restaurants in the United States, with their limited menus, and restaurants in Mexico that explore the great variety of that nation's cuisine. In Seoul, barbecuing at the table is as common as in Los Angeles, except that the grill will probably be fueled with live coals.
