Don Day Korean Restaurant in Oakland?
I saw an ad in the Korean paper for a new place called Don Day Restaurant on 346 14st. Oakland.
It looks to be a pork specialty place with not only Korean Bacon, but it has black pig, wine pork, bean curd pork, and spicy steamed beef ribs.
I plan on going real soon to check it out.
My meat-eating friends say it's fantastic, and it always smells wonderful when I walk past. Very cute interior, too (mod/minimalist cows and pigs, with a cutsey cartoon twist). Sadly, as a vegetarian, there's only one thing on the menu that I can eat (a tofu soup with a miso broth), and I wasn't in a soup mood the last time I was in the neighborhood.
Apparently, it's supposed to be a good place to order beers and order all sorts of meat snack-type items,
The name couldn't be cuter, it turns out.
'Don' means pork as a Chinese character,
'Donday', in pure Korean, is a folksy way of saying "You/we are going nuts."
So it could mean,
'Don' also means money, and we can remember it as 'Don's Day' or 'Donde'
Love that logo.
