Don Day Korean Restaurant in Oakland?

crimson Jan 5, 2007 10:48 PM

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.

Anyone been?

I plan on going real soon to check it out.

crimson out.

    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,

    'Pork Day'
    'We're nuts'
    'Don' also means money, and we can remember it as 'Don's Day' or 'Donde'

    Love that logo.

      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,

        That's right on the corner of Webster and 14th, right? Used to be Do Ha Na?

        That's too bad. Do Ha Na had horribly tiny portions and cost more than a lot of places, but their panchan (although scant) was the best of the downtown area. Maybe the new place is better, though.
