DJ Cafe Monterey Park

Anyone tried it out yet? Saw the sign/banner yesterday driving down Atlantic. Review on Yelp seems to be by the owner. The korean place that used to be there was not too bad.

    1. Boiling Crab + Sunday Bistro = DJ Cafe?

        Now I'm confused.
        I tolerate BC but hate SB.

          I'm just saying that DJ seems like a combo of Asian seafood and hong-kong style cafe ...

          Not making any sort of qualitative statement about any of the places.

            Got it.
            When you mentioned the two I thought maybe they were the same owners.
            Sounded like quantitative analysis.

              ok..looks like I might have to be a guinea pig then

      2. I just looked at the Yelp review.. sounds like an idiot wrote it. His one and only review.. you must be right, that must be the owner or an interested party. : )

        1. This place isn't even open. Looks totally dead on the outside except for a sign saying they're open from 5 pm to 2 am, plus the Grand Opening sign. But it wasn't open even at 6pm. Also there are no Yelp reviews--not even the one that the owner put up a while ago.

          1. I was there a few weeks back. It is more of a boiling crab with some korean food. More pricier than BC in my opinion as I had to pay extra for the corn and potatoes in the seafood. This is not a cafe. I went in thinking it was. They sell seafood by the pound and comes out kinda spicy. I ordered mild and it was very spicy. But service was good as we were the only ones there. A few other people came in and left after seeing the menu.
