OB Bear vs Dan Sung Sa

There have been some amazing recos of Dan Sung Sa, but I went to both and found the wings and the seafood pancake better at OB Bear -- and a bit less expensive. But it could have just been that i was drunker at OB Bear! What do people think?

  1. There is absolutely no comparison. Dan Sung Sa is an overpriced scene with mediocre food. Good for tourists and kids up from the OC who hope they won't get ID'd. Points for looking dirty and 'urban' I guess.

    I am convinced that OB Bear is the repository of the finger bones of Saint Athelstan. Only mystical power can explain how that chicken is so goddamn delicious. Try the whelk/cucumber/gochujang salad with it. It's like going to Lourdes.

      Is that #12 row sea snail salad or #13 cooked sea snail salad?

        Cooked, though if you can find a way to get them to row in unison...

    2. I like the mook salad better at DSS, but everything else, OB Bear is better.
