Odaesan - Open again!

I was driving down Olympic the other day and saw a sign announcing Odaesan's Grand Reopening. Perhaps now I will finally make it out there to try their al bap.

      I went there about 3 weeks ago: same locale, same owner, but different menu. No more Al Bap or Hwe Dup Bap, it is now a BBQ joint with very interesting entrees and fantastic service. We tried the Beef Sashimi with pine nuts, Asian pear and egg : it was excellent. The beef was good, and pairing with the crunchy yet light pear and pine nuts was an excellent idea. Can't wait to explore the non BBQ menu further and we plan to be back soon.

        But it was a bBQ place before, too. You sure there's no Bap? Not of any sort? Did you read the whole non BBQ menu?

          The sushi counter and all the raw seafood items are gone. We asked the waitress too, no more Bap....

    2. I am also a fan of their old menu! But we always received such amazingly friendly service that I will look forward to trying anything they want to be.

      I am glad to hear of this good news; thanks, MeowMixx, for posting!
