Dae Bok Restaurant - korean blowfish

badseed | Jul 6, 200506:56 PM

I don't remember seeing this place reviewed but they have excellent blowfish soup hot pot. It's served with bean sprouts, tofu, and a leafy green vegetable I'm not familiar with. I got the one without the chili past because I wanted to taste the fish which is a very meaty and tasty white fish.

After the soup was mostly gone the waitress made a great bi bim bap in the soup bowl with chopped vegetables, seaweed, and rice - very good. This was served with a small dish of raw squid in chili paste.

Also, the banchan was very good. One of the dishes was the same green leafy vegetable used in the soup served with the skin of the blowfish.

The restaurant only serves fish and one whole side of the menu is blowfish. It's served every way imaginable from steamed to fried to shabu-shabu. It's not cheap with the soup costing $14 per person.

The other side of the menu featured monk fish, eel and cat fish.

The address:

Dae Bok Restaurant
2010 James M Wood Blvd, Alvarado
