Many of the restaurants I've reviewed have been launched by people trying to recreate the flavors that they grew up with. Karen Wee Lin Tan Beckman dishes up her mother's recipes at

Makan Malaysian Café

; Jaedo Ryu uses

Bop & Gogi

to showcase the bulgogi, kimchi and bibimbop of his native Korea; and at

Taita Peruvian Cuisine & Bar

, Jose "Pepito" Aparicio recalls his childhood in Peru through ceviche, lomo saltado and aji de gallina.

The mission is similar at Big Mac & Little Lu's Seafood Market & Grill, except there it's not the cuisine of another country that owners Paul and Ashley Brock set out to recreate -- but of a coastline.
