It was another one of those crisp chilly days where the weather couldn’t decide if it wants to be spring or dump some more snow and misery onto us. We decided to beat it by heading out to Don Day for some hot pot, hot stone dol sot bi bim bap and some Korean style BBQ ribs. Tucked away in a tinny tiny strip mall right beside a dentist, the décor is spartan with some random rainbow hued posters, but there was some yummy scents coming from the kitchen!
We had headed here before, and what a difference it made to service when we had a friend along that spoke Korean! Anyways, pics from that review were chewed up by a picture corrupting monster, so we took along the nice SRL into this forage! We ordered a few items on top of 3 hot pots as the hot pots cook at the table, and we can have food to nosh on while things cooked. Kimchi and a tangy seaweed salad was served to start. And if you like kimchi, don’t be afraid to ask for more!
The Seafood Pancake was tasty, medium thickness and a smattering of fresh seafood throughout.
The regular BBQ beef ribs were decent the last time we had them, so this time around, we ordered the chili version. That was a mistake. It was thickly coated in the sweet-spicy hot sauce that’s usually squirted on bi bim bap. Sadly, the sauce completely masked any BBQ flavor.
The dol sot bi bim bap as good, with the standard rice, cabbage, beef, bean sprouts and raw egg yolk in a hot stone pot… and served with a bottle of the sweet chili sauce that coated the chili ribs.
